Company email (February 2015)

"We advise that the Fining agents used in the winemaking process for the 2013 & 2014 Banrock Station Pink Moscato is Skim Milk Powder and Gelatine.
Fining agents have been used for many years in the winemaking process primarily for clarification and tannin reduction, and can change from vintage to vintage. No Isinglass is used for these particular vintages. "

Company email (January 2011)

"Fining agents, such as Isinglass, egg, skim milk powder and Gelatine are used in the winemaking process for most wines, and can vary from vintage to vintage.
If you can provide a specific wine and vintage, we can advise accordingly."

Banrock was our first instance where the double-check paid off - it was initially listed as vegan friendly, but Leigh wrote in to say that the White Shiraz wasn't vegan, and Justin says that the reds say "fined with egg and dairy" on the label. Double check, people!
