Five fantastic organic reds for fall

Friends who hear about my interest in sustainable wine practices often ask for recommendations on organic wines. Generally the ones who plaster their bottles with "green" labels and have names like "ecologica" (Sweden's best selling organic wine) are not the ones a wine-lover will reach for. Still, some of the absolutely best wines in the world are organic or Biodynamic (think DRC). They just don't shout about it. Here is a selection of five lovely red wines (from budget to lux), all organic or biodynamic and well worth a sip.

1. Mule Gateway Vineyard Mclaren Vale Shiraz (2009)

Mule is the McLaren Vale wines of Yarra-based Innocent Bystander. An excellent representative of what makes the small winemaker movement in Australia so exciting. Full nose with plenty of black fruit and wet tobacco. Meaty and warmly inviting. Tannins smooth as a baby’s bottom and a light freshness to balance the developing fruit. Easy to enjoy alone or with a nice rack of lamb on the Barbie.
