The Other Wine Company Adelaide Hills Pinot Gris

Adelaide Hills, South Australia

The Other Wine Co.

This label is the brainchild of Shaw + Smith. Martin and Michael have pursued with Shaw + Smith a relentless focus on Chardonnay, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, yet have been itching for a few years to work with other varieties...

After much discussion they decided to use another label for these varieties, and with typical Aussie directness, called it ‘The Other Wine Co’.

Fruit is grown in cool, high altitude vineyards in the Adelaide Hills. Grapes were picked in the perfect window of ripeness to achieve good natural acidity and depth of flavour.

Vintage information

2015 was a remarkable vintage. Above average winter rainfall ensured a good start to the growing season and warm weather in late December / early January was moderated by welcome rain on 13th January. The season concluded with mild, steady conditions and delivered fruit of wonderful quality.


The Pinot Gris was vinified and bottled in the Adelaide Hills.  Hand-picked fruit underwent cool fermentation in stainless steel, after which the wine spent about four months on lees. It did not spend time in oak and was bottled under screw cap to retain the freshness of the fruit.

Tasting Notes

A delicious Pinot Gris with the tell-tale bread crust and ripe pear character of this variety at its best. Dry and crisp on the palate, it is bursting with Red Delicious apples, white peaches and a floral hint, with a fresh and vibrant finish.
