END OF VINTAGE AT HARRIS ORGANIC
It is the end of another vintage at Harris Organic Wines. Duncan Harris and his WWOOFing assistant Benoit Keruzore picked the last of the late-picked Pedro Ximenez (Pedro or P.X. to its friends). This fruit will be crushed to make our famous liqueur wine… this vintage will be available in about 10 years. Of course we always have Pedro Ximenez available.
Our autumnal Pedro has been left on the vine to “raisinise” or semi-dry in order to attain the rich sweetness necessary for its optimal making into wine. You could say that the Raison d’etre of our Pedro Ximenez is to mature sufficiently to make the rich liqueur style wine that Swan Valley Winery are famous for.
HARRIS ORGANIC is the only certified organic winery and vineyard in Perth’s Swan Valley.
“We believe that the organics movement is a world-wide trend because smart consumers are demanding to know exactly what is going into their foods. It represents a social backlash against corporate monopolies who are fundamentally only interested in extending shelf life and profits rather than human life and ecological sustainability.” We say: think biological welfare not warfare! it is the way of the future.
