Charity begins with a bottle
From The Age (29th May 2012)
"...Laity's biggest challenge is persuading people this is charity wine with a difference. ''The idea came about after the fires because I had tasted a lot of charity wines and they were all terrible, and this is my biggest stumbling block - that [buyers think] what I am selling is going to be the same garbage as everyone else,'' he says.
But these are seriously good wines, sold in six or 12-bottle cases at below retail prices. With many animal charities on his list, 10 of Laity's 12 wines are vegan. Some are run ends, some sourced through contacts, others from winemakers wanting to help after reading about his social enterprise in wine magazines. Buyers are not told the source vineyard, but Laity's website description includes year and area of origin. Because he usually obtains a tank sample, he is selling the wine cheaper than the vineyards themselves, so the deal is that he does not identify them.
Wines he has sold have included a 2009 chardonnay from award-winning winemaker Graeme Miller in the Yarra Valley, one of his first backers; a medal-winning 2006 shiraz from Chalice Bridge in Margaret River; a 2009 sauvignon blanc from Sticks in the Yarra Valley; and a 2006 merlot from Ladbroke Grove in Coonawarra, which sold him 40 cases when it ran out of labels. A James Hall cabernet sauvignon sold out in two weeks. ..."

GOODWILL WINES COONAWARRA MERLOT 2006
"from a single vineyard in central Coonawarra...
Plum and raspberry with quality nutty vanilla oak, a touch of olive and mint, along with cedar bottle age character peeping through. It’s soft and pliant with a silky texture, good freshness and an extra little tweak of grainy tannin on exit. Has good flavour and interest along with excellent drinkability. Fine value...."
GOODWILL WINES YARRA VALLEY SAUVIGNON BLANC 2009
From a single vineyard located in Yarra Glen, whole bunch pressed and fermented with native yeast.
"What’s best about this wine is the level of interest it provides – it’s textured, chalky and dry with elements of smoke and flint but has bright grapefruit and passionfruit flavours too – light and shade. It’s not sweet either. The taste of ruby red grapefruit comes through on the finish. Fine value.
