The Other Wine Co. Grenache 2022 13.5% 750ml

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 94pointsThe other side of Shaw + Smith, exploring regions and varieties beyond their Adelaide Hills remit. Three Blewitt Springs vineyards contribute different elements to this thoroughly modern grenache. Each parcel was fermented separately, with 10% whole bunches in each. Matured for just 7 months in a range of relatively neutral vessels. Initial earthy, almost ironwork-like notes and bush herbals lead into a juicy style, a little ripper. It’s fresh and vibrant, but then gathers an encouraging mouthfeel with powdery, earthy tannins. Very likeable. Tony Love

The Other Wine Co. is a new venture that aims to make wines from the right grape, grown in the right place. That may sound obvious, but it's a principal honoured more "in the breach than the observance." Really good matches of variety and place take a long time to become established, but when they do, the proof is in the glass. The Other Wine Co. wines are entirely vinified and bottled at Shaw + Smith in Balhannah. The wines are "other" partly because they give the winemakers a chance to lay with varieties and regions that don't fit into Shaw + Smith. They are also an "other" perspective from so many wines that favour over-ripeness and oak instead of freshness and balance, and power over drinkability. These are made to drink and enjoy. That's it!
