About

The Margin Walker is a wine designed to tell the story of a special part of one vineyard in the Yarra Valley.

As Nathan Reeves told us, “This is made from the first few rows we got access to in the Lusatia Park Vineyard. This year we kept that fruit separate, allocated it to our two best second use barrels and left it to do its thing for over a year.”

Variety takes a back seat to the story of place with this wine. You are meant to feel a connection to this part of the Yarra as you drink it.

It’s a great achievement, one that few other producers are brave enough to attempt in our variety-centric wine culture.

Campbell Mattinson was suitably impressed, saying, “Quality is not in dispute… Weight and style are the first impression; length and elegance the lasting.” - 94 points.

In this wine you can see the maturing of the Out of Step brand. Sometimes wine is about more than just the grape.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s steely, nervy, clearly oak-influenced, gravelly and intense. Quality is not in dispute. Grapefruit and cut grass aspects bite through sweet, cedary, smoky oak. As the wine breathes the oak recedes and the bright, buoyant, glistening quality of the fruit shines through. Length too is excellent. Weight and style are the first impression; length and elegance the lasting.” - Campbell Mattinson
