A lightweight version of an orange wine, floral, mouth-watering and only moderately textural. And electric pink.
About The Wine
This is the follow-up to the hugely popular initial release of skin contact Pinot Gris from Alex and Galit. And it's a beaut!
Like in 2019 it was nursed through its time on skins, with some whole bunches in the mix, before being gently basket pressed before and bottled unfined, unfiltered. Unlike in 2019 though the 2020 conditions required an earlier pick, so this is a tad lighter, brighter and zestier than its predecessor.
The finished wine sits hot pink in the glass- almost glowing from its ruddy coloured skins. It's floral, fancy and beautiful to drink.
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.
