  • THE BRIEF
  • Grenache from McLaren Vale has often been overshadowed by Shiraz and even Cabernet Sauvignon, but in the last decade it has become more and more clear that Grenache is the gem of the vale. The old bush vines, grown without irrigation, that are in their prime for making great Grenache are among the viticultural treasures of Australia.

    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 play 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.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Low yields and hand-picking. Picking is at ripeness not over-ripeness. Open ferments, as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Fresh, vibrant and spicy. Super fresh and intense raspberries, rhubarb, sage and violets; all packed into a medium bodied wine.

    MIKE BENNIE - WINE BUSINESS MAGAZINE


    What a pretty wine this is. And has that come-hither feel to it. Spicy, floral fragrance, cherry-red berry spectrum, medium weight, svelte then a soft, broad and sweet finish with residual freshness in tow. A superb fan of tannin follows the wine. Feels pretty high level as a style.

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    It serves up varietal grenache in splendid drinking style. So fresh, so vibrant, so easy to hook into. It tastes of raspberry and dry spice, redcurrant and anise. Flings of dry/sweet spice complete the picture, with dry/fine/ripe tannin providing the framework. Easy wine to recommend.

    An attractively fresh raspberry style with a floral edge, too. The palate has such crunchy and supple fruit presence. Drink now. Screw cap.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Medium purple/red colour, light and bright. The bouquet is simple and quite herbal; and a bit stemmy, with some sweet lolly grenache fruit as well. The wine is light to medium-weight and fresh, bright, straightforward, with some sappiness in the tannins. Very light tannins. It's possibly unoaked. A good, fresh early-drinking style, albeit rather simple.
