Vegan Wine

Though made entirely the same way as all wines, vegan wines are wines in which during the winemaking step of "fining" that is needed to filter the wine, no animal-based products are used. The most common fining agents used by the wine industry are egg whites and milk protein. Vegan wines instead use alternatives such as clay or plant-based fining agents.

Critique Review

“From a single vineyard in the Cromwell Basin. A moderately intense pinot noir with cherry, plum and pronounced mixed spices together with an influence of nutty oak supported by vibrant acidity. ”
