About The Wine

Out Of Step are experts in Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc.

They make multiple expressions from top vineyards across the region. Each is made basically the same (excluding the Margin Walker and the psychedelic Catbird) so the differences in the vineyard accents shine through.

This is from the Lone Star vineyard, a happy hunting ground for high-quality fruit for many a negociant-style winemaker in the region.

This recieved 94 points both on The Wine Front and in Jame Halliday's Wine Companion.

An excellent wine in the upper echelon of Australian Sauvignon Blanc.

About Out Of Step

Dave Chatfield is the man behind the Out Of Step project.

After working vineyards in the Yarra Valley for years, Dave decided it was time to start his own thing.

The philosophy behind his wines: “To be great it must be real, expressive & honest.”

The wines are made with very little tinkering in the winery, allowing the great vineyards he sources fruit from to shine.

Based in the Yarra Valley, but sourcing fruit from various parts of Victoria, Out Of Step is forging a reputation for serious, eye-catching wines at a great price.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"It sits slightly cloudy in the glass – one of those love/hate things. It always puts me in a positive frame of mind. Matchsticks and associated funk. Slate, snow peas, tropical fruit. Texture aplenty. Gravel and/or gunmetal. It’s a touch more ‘varietal’ than its Willowlake stablemate, more grippy too, a little less flow and little more dare, though there’s certainly still plenty of the former and not an excessive amount of the latter, if that males sense. I’d reckon this is a ripping drink." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Hand-picked, wild-fermented and matured in used French barriques, partial mlf. Gunflint, slatey and fresh herbal aromas upfront, with a touch of reduction. More obvious varietal characters emerge as it sits in the glass, but stay mainly within the leaner, greener end of the spectrum. Tasting the wine it feels more accessible, with a riper, quite juicy feel to the fruit, although the texture and taut, almost grippy acidity are the definitive elements." - Steven Creber (Halliday Wine Companion)
