Since day one The Other Wine Co. has championed a modern style of Australian Grenache with brightness, spice and juiciness, drawn from magnificent old vine fruit grown in sandy soils. 2019 is notable for exciting new grower parcels. Three main Blewitt Springs growers this year; all old vine material on sandy soils in a cooler part of the Vale. One vineyard looked very Pinot-esque, adding lifted spice and florals, where the others lent concentration and darker fruits. A great combination. Marked by fruit intensity, drive and juiciness. A precise yet juicy core of red fruit sits in between floral top notes and a graphite base. Medium bodied with fine, grainy tannins.

This is more-ish. The fruit is sweet but it’s surrounded by savouriness. Raspberry and/or redcurrant flavours swing into woodsy herbs. There’s finesse to the tannin. Both the wine’s freshness and mouthfeel are in a good place. Ticks all around.
