The Other Wine Co.

South Australia, south australia Australia

This is the brainchild of Martin Shaw and Michael Hill Smith. With their Shaw + Smith wines, Martin and Michael have pursued a relentless focus on Chardonnay, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, yet had been itching to work with other varieties for a few years. After much discussion, they decided to use another label for these varieties, and with typical Aussie directness called it ‘The Other Wine Co.’. In 2015, winemaker Adam Wadewitz, a highly impressive addition to the team at Balhannah, selected some Pinot Gris from the Adelaide Hills and Grenache from Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale to make two wines for The Other Wine Co. Swiftly going on to win the award for South Australia’s hottest wine at the Adelaide Review Hot 100, the first vintage of the Grenache secured the top spot from a record entry of 1,200 wines. The unoaked Pinot Gris is delicious: it has the tell-tale bread crust and ripe pear character of this variety at its best and is dry and crisp on the palate. The Grenache, picked early to preserve its bright red fruit characters, is equally impressive. The tannins are ripe and silky, the fruit lifted and irresistible.
