"In regards to your query, I've touched base with our winemakers and unfortunately it's a little tricky for them to provide a definitive answer without spending hours investigating the individual compositions of each wine.

However, the broad brush advice is that none of our white whites are suitable for vegans - we do use animal derived products in the production of all of our white wines. In regards to our red wines, all of them might be suitable but without going through each individual wine we can't fully guarantee their suitability for vegans.

Is there a particular wine that you're interested in? If you're interested in just one or two then I think we could try and find the compositions of these wines as it pains us to turn potential customers away!"

Q: "If you have the time, I'd love to know whether the following reds are suitable:
2012 Are You Game Shiraz
2009 490 Metres Shiraz
2010 Ladies Who Shoot Their Lunch Shiraz
2009 Stone Dwellers Shiraz"

A: "I've run these wines past the wine makers to check if they are suitable for vegans.

The good news is that none of the below vintages of these wines have been made with animal products :-) I.e. All the wines you've listed are suitable for vegans.

However, it's worth noting that when vintages change their suitability for vegans may also change. This is a result of the variability of vintages and the necessary winemaking decisions/techniques that may change as a result. I.e. some vintages (for varying reasons) we may have to use animal products in our wines and in others we won't have to."
