Cape Jaffa Wines releases its biodynamic wine range La Lune
MOUNT BENSON – 29 July 2008: Mount Benson’s founding winery and pioneer in biodynamic winegrowing on the Limestone Coast Cape Jaffa Wines (www.capejaffawines.com.au) has released its first certified biodynamic wines under the new La Lune range.
Named after the moon, a powerful governing force in biodynamic vineyard management, the La Lune range of wines will celebrate with each vintage parcels of fruit which display exceptional varietal expression and terroir. Certified by Australian Certified Organic (ACO), each bottle of La Lune features ACO’s certified biodynamic bug logo on its label, an unbleached 100% cotton twill weave material produced with fewer chemicals than a paper label. This type of cotton label is a first for the Australian wine industry.
At this stage production is limited to 10 barriques, equating to 250 cases, of each variety per vintage.
“Releasing these new certified wines is the culmination of years of hard work and commitment to biodynamic growing,” says general manager Derek Hooper. “To have a national certifying body such as ACO recognise the work we’ve put in to produce a certifiable wine is a great achievement for a winery of our size.”
Distribution of the wines will begin through select retailers in South Australia with specialty stores in the eastern states also receiving small allotments over the next twelve months. Consumers will also be able to purchase the wines online through Cape Jaffa’s new online shopping cart facilities at their website www.capejaffawines.com.au.
This release follows the recent biodynamic certification of Cape Jaffa Wines’ 25-hectare vineyard located in Mount Benson on the Limestone Coast.
