The Benefits of Organic Wines
12th November 2020
Natural winemaking discourages the use of chemical additives and advocates for the use of natural yeast to induce the fermentation process. Australian organic wines are purely based on a natural winemaking process with no chemical use from growth up until the product is complete and market-ready. Here’s an idea of what organic wines mean and some of their incredible health benefits:
What is Organic Wine?
Organic wine refers to naturally grown and produced wine. This type of wine is grown without inorganic fertilizers or any form of chemical and no Sulphur content during production. The whole idea of organic wine is to produce wine from naturally grown grapes; the grapes are grown in their ecosystem of organic matters such as bacteria and yeast.
Some examples of the organic wines in Australia include the following:
- J&J Vineyards Rivers Lane Shiraz 2015Yangarra Mclaren Vale 2017 Viognier
- Cullen Mangan 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
- NV Brut Elite Cuvée 1501

- Moscato Bella Rose
- Shiraz merlot
- Mount Horrocks 2017 Semillon
- Frankland Estate Isolation Ridge Shiraz 2016
- Grosset Polish Hill Riesling 2018
- Stefano Lubiana Estate Pinot Noir 2017
- Kalleske Eduard Shiraz 2017
Benefits of Organic Wines
Organic wines come along with several health benefits if taken in the right amounts. Such benefits include:
They are made from Organic Grapes
Since growth, up until they are processed and released into the market, organic wines do not incorporate the use of chemicals. Fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and other in-organic chemicals are discouraged. This makes these wines the best and safest to consume. With other in-organic wines, harmful residues of these chemicals are likely to feature in the end products making them quite unsafe. They can even lead to unwarranted health complications in the long run.
Little Sulphur Contents
Sulfur dioxide is a widely used preservative that is used in almost any commercial drink, including winemaking. This is a common content likely to feature even in organic wines owing to its antibacterial attributes. Unless you have an allergy or severe asthma, this component is considered safe for consumption. However, in organic Australian wines, the use of sulfites is way below the recommended levels making them very natural.
Little Added Sugar
Sugar is a critical component in determining how alcoholic a wine can be or how sweet it tastes. This may prompt winemakers to add sugars in a bid to achieve their preferred alcohol volume or hide or conceal a bad taste from low-quality grapes. With organic Australian wines, added sugar is kept minimal to achieve the intended, healthy natural product.
Organic wines come with little or no additives. Australian winemakers attempt to keep additives such as refined sugar, clarification agents, and sulphuric acids as low as possible. This makes it more natural and eco-friendlier yet sustainable than in-organic wines.
If you want to go to work after a night of merry-making, organic wine is your best bet. These give little hangovers compared to conventional wines. Organic wines in Australia have little additives and components that increase alcohol levels making them less alcoholic. This means little or no hangovers.
