About

One of the most interesting things about the natural winemaking movement is that a wine doesn’t always turn out the way you expect. If you’re not adding, fiddling with or correcting the wine, the characteristics you get in the end might just surprise you.

This beautiful Shiraz from The Other Right is one out of the box. The fruit is from Sellicks Hill in McLaren Vale, Alex Schulkin and Galit Shachaf picked it a full ripeness. Should be a big, rich fruit bomb, right? Well, not quite.

As the wine has Unfurled in the bottle, unmistakable cool climate characteristics have arisen. “Strangely for a Shiraz from McLaren Vale, it’s more on the cool climate side: restrained fruit and unrestrained spice. Dark cherries, pain au chocolat and lots of pepper.” It’s still a juicy, heartwarming Shiraz, but maybe a little different to what you might expect from the region.

You can’t always get what you want… But if you try sometimes you just might find… You get what you need….

Only 75 dozen made.

What It Tastes Like

It’s ripe and juicy with silky plum and blueberry notes, smells of warm blueberry pie and dark coco. Slips through the mouth, all chewy and plump. Fine chalky tannin edge the deep, inky fruit. Such a great expression of Shiraz, pure and unadulterated. Great stuff.
