Pure Vision is a South Australian owned boutique winery dedicated to providing premium quality organic wines. Sourcing only the finest organic grapes from South Australia, we have met our vision to produce wine which captures the essence of each grape in its natural glory. Our certified organic grapes grow free from synthetic chemicals and fertilisers - a process which releases the natural colours and flavours resulting in wine which tastes pure, clean and delicious.
The Vineyard:-The ideal Mediterranean climate offers sunshine, a touch of rain and an abundance of clean air; perfect grape growing conditions. The vineyard is maintained in an environmentally friendly and ecological safe method using only certified organic inputs. The foundation of organic farming is to maintain healthy soil. Cover crops such as barley are used on this vineyard as mulch to suppress weeds during the winter.
The soil on the vineyard is well balanced with a healthy nutrient mix including well maintained organic matter levels. The soil is red, sandy clay with a limestone base, and the main property is intermixed with a rich Gawler River loam. The healthy soils of the Adelaide Plains have contributed to the development of intense fruit flavours evident in the Pure Vision wine range.
