Featured Low Sulphur & Preservative Free Wines

Smallfry

2018 Barossa Joven

In his youth, Barossa winemaker Wayne Ahrens spent a year living in Spain, and this Australian wine is a tribute to the kinds of wines he drank out of stemless glasses in bodegas over there. Joven means ‘young’ in Spanish, and it’s used to describe unaged, easy-drinking red wines.

Like its Spanish inspiration, the blend is predominantly Tempranillo and Garnacha (Spanish for Grenache), but with a bit of Monastrell, Bastardo and Tinta Amarela thrown in. It’s medium-bodied yet light on its feet and energetic, a little rustic but full of juicy, fresh red fruit, with a touch of earthiness at the end.

Any kind of paella would be perfect with this wine, but feel free to improvise!

Ca' di Rajo

2019 Lemoss

Simone, Alessio and Fabio Cecchetto, the three brothers who run the Ca’ di Rajo winery in Veneto, the historic home of Prosecco, are quite the innovators. Chief among their innovations is the Bellussera vine training method, which elevates the vines 4m off the ground allowing food crops to be grown underneath.

This wine is a Prosecco the way Prosecco used to be made – fermented naturally in the bottle instead of a giant industrial tank. A crisp yet juicy sparkling wine with aromas of mandarin and green apple with some bitter lemon undertones.

Drink it very cold as an aperitif or with light vegetarian dishes.

La Colombière

2019 Vinum

Diane Cauvin did a big tour of France’s wine regions before taking the reins of this estate in the South-West of France, just north of Toulouse. Here all efforts are made to preserve the soils and rare vines growing in it by farming biodynamically and holistically.

This wine is made from a grape called Négrette, a very rare variety virtually non-existent outside of the tiny sub-region of Fronton. Light and ethereal, with aromas of raspberries and blueberries on the palate and a distinct scent of violets, coincidentally the emblematic flower of Toulouse.

For authenticity points, drink this with cassoulet or a stew with a similar soul.

Brave New Wine

2020 Riot Girl

Sometimes a wine is more than a wine, it’s a movement. At least that’s what this wine represents for winemakers Yoko and Andries Mostert in WA’s little-known Denmark region. A movement towards fun, juicy wine that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

A blend of mostly Vermentino and Sauvignon Blanc, the wine simply jumps out of the glass. It’s incredibly vibrant and refreshing with aromas of Meyer lemon and pineapple with some welcome texture due to limited skin contact.

This can and should be drunk on a warm, sunny day along with whatever light snacks are around.

What people are saying about Feravina

Their customer-focus and the enthusiasm they have for their product shines through at every point of contact.

I am usually not a fan of wine packs or subscriptions but this is one I’ll be coming back to again and again, which speaks volumes. The wines are expertly picked in each box, and all the hard work is done for you. Each wine is better than the last.

I was blown away. As someone who works in the health and fitness industry, you need to be aware of what you’re putting into your body.

If you’re watching what you eat, why wouldn’t you watch what you drink as well? And I don’t plan on giving up drinking anytime soon. I love Feravina because I always know exactly what I’m getting – delicious and healthy wines. I’ve never had a bad bottle from these guys. Awesome service, quick and easy, and great idea.

– Callie

The order arrived the next day and contained an assortment of wines that I’ve not previously seen.

All of them have been great so far and I’m looking forward to trying the rest. So far so good!

Preservative Free Wines FAQs

Does preservative free wine exist?

Unfortunately, preservative free wines don’t exist, as sulphur, the main preservative in wines, is naturally occurring in wines through fermentation. While it’s impossible to avoid sulphites when drinking wine, we limit sulphites to 50ppm, of which 20-30ppm is naturally occurring in wine, and many of our producers choose to not add sulphur as a preservative, so many of our wines are added sulphur free.

In some cases, wine does need a preservative so it doesn’t oxidise, especially for wines that are cellared for years on end. This can make it difficult for people who are sensitive to sulphur, which can be added in quantities that are known to cause reactions like headaches and sinus issues. However, there are many wines that do minimise sulphur, as well as other additives that may also be causing sensitivities, and this is what we specialise in sourcing the most preservative free wines for sulphur sensitive wine drinkers.

When it comes to these drinking preservative free wines, they’re typically best drunk within the first few years of their life rather than being stored in a cellar. They’re perfect now, so enjoy them now! This is the best that preservative free wine can get. 

What is additive free wine?

It may surprise you that up to 90 additives can be added to wine, beyond just sulphites. Preservatives, colourings, flavourings, acid balancers and stabilisers can also be used to manipulate wine to taste, smell and look better. For us, this is far from natural, and we’d rather drink additive / preservative free wine from winemakers who know how to make good wine from good quality grapes.

Also, a few of the additives are questionable for health, so beyond sourcing low sulphur wine or no added sulphur wines, we also make sure all our wines are additive and extra preservative free. This is what preservative free wine means to us – as pure, natural and unadulterated as possible, so we’re drinking wine, and only wine. 

Are all natural and organic wines sulphite free?

The shorter answer is: no. First, there is some sulphur (also called sulphites) that naturally occurs in wine – around 30ppm. This typically isn’t enough to cause a reaction. The wine industry allows up to 250ppm of sulphur, and you might have noticed that sometimes you react to wines, and other times you don’t. The variation in sulphur content is why. This is why we have a maximum limit of 50ppm of sulphites allowed in our wines, which is well below the threshold that typically causes sensitivities. 

Next, just because a winemaker practices natural or organic winemaking, doesn’t necessarily mean they won’t use sulphur to preserve their wine. Hence, one cannot make the assumption that just because a wine is natural or organic, that it is low sulphur, although there is a tendency for these wines to be lower in sulphur than most commercial wines.

If you’re looking for low sulphur preservative free wine, we believe we have the best range available, with our producers being fully transparent about what they use in the winemaking process, and what they don’t. As health conscious wine drinkers who also have sensitivities to preservatives in wine, if after scrutiny any wines don’t pass the taste and sensitivity test, they don’t make it into our wine packs. 

 

Is it possible for me to purchase wines that have no added sulphur?

Yes – simply let us know that’s your preference when you’re at the checkout, and we’ll make sure we only give you wines that only have naturally occurring sulphites in them. This means they can have up to 30ppm sulphites that are naturally occurring in the wine.
