About The Wine

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.

It's still a juicy, heartwarming Shiraz, but maybe a little different to what you might expect from the region made with zero additions.

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

About The Other Right

The Other Right is a fantastic artisan producer from McLaren Vale.

Russian-born winemaker Alex Schulkin and his partner Galit are crafting clean, premium, natural wines from organically vineyards in the Vale and Adelaide Hills.

The wines are excellent examples of quality with a natural philosophy. Alex's day job is as a researcher at the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI). He's taken what he's learnt there and channelled it into his label making his no-sulphur wines show a cleanliness and liveliness that is a cut above.

Jubilant, vibrant and irrepressibly irreverent, you'll never know what to expect from The Other Right.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

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. - Different Drop Wine Team

Additional Info

From The Producer

We aren't easily moved by Shiraz, but this one is really moving. Vineyard that has never been sprayed with anything, not even copper or sulfur. Dry grown. Cracked soil and struggling vines yield grapes that are very sensitive to picking timing - we think we nailed that this year. Essentially, it is our best understanding of this vineyard. Velvety, juicy goodness. Very lush, pretty big, in the most gentle way. Friendly generosity, purity and peace of mind that will follow you to the bottom of the bottle.
