18 February, 2011

Ehrmanns has been named UK agent for Australian producer Ascella Pure Wines, which operates the largest organic vineyard in the Hunter Valley.

The range, exclusive to independent retailers, includes Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Shiraz, each priced £10.99. Ascella Pure Red and Pure White wines will be exclusive to Whole Foods Market in London and will retail for £7.99 each.

Ehrmanns’ Australian brand manager Rachel Herrig said: “We were drawn to Ascella’s dedication to making quality wine, with practices that far exceed the organic certification requirements.”?Winemakers Liz Jackson and Greg Silkman use only natural preservatives, and grapes are regularly tested to ensure airborne chemicals have not contaminated the vineyard.
