'The crimson hue and spicy, smoked meat bouquet set the playing field for the palate, where whole bunch/stem nuances chase juicy fruits and fine tannins.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • Out of Step's first red from the Syme on Yarra vineyard in Gruyere. A good part of the world for Shiraz, this. Not quite upper Yarra & not quite valley floor. Warm enough & cool enough. And a bloody good grower to boot in Stuart Proud

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Around 80% whole bunch, mostly in open fermenters, but with a small batch sealed up tight in tank. The balance destemmed. All wild yeast fermented, pressed off & matured in old hogsheads. No adds other than as little sulphur as we felt we could get away with.
    Like with all our wines we played for texture, concentration, tension & deliciousness using an equal mix of intuition & intellect. That balance between prettiness, juiciness & structure……Plenty in the glass to ponder if you want to think about it, but we have no issues whatsoever if you just want to drink it…….wine is, after all, a drink.
    Alcohol: 14.0%

    '80% whole bunches, open-fermented, a small part in a sealed tank, the balance destemmed, all wild-fermented and matured in used Hungarian hogsheads. The crimson hue and spicy, smoked meat bouquet set the playing field for the palate, where whole bunch/stem nuances chase juicy fruits and fine tannins. Those who don't enjoy whole bunch flavours will hate it, but I love it.'

    'Super fresh wine. Mouthwatering. Pulpy cherries and twigs, nuts and dried herbs. It all just rushes through the mouth with vibrant abandon. Plenty of savouriness but fruit is the go. This is what young red wine is all about. It’s like drinking straight from the vat; like tapping the veins of the vines.'
