The Other Wine Co. was first established as an arm of the Shaw & Smith empire that went beyond the S & S Adelaide Hills regulars, with an aim to deliver maximum drinkability for lowish prices. Here, the label lobs up a winner, too, with The Other Wine Co. Grenache 2020 a McLaren Vale red of instant appeal. Light ruby, the sunny raspberry fruit drives this incredibly easy – but still substantial – Grenache. Open raspberry fruit, minimal tannins, just a little mulchy edges, it absolutely glides down in its ripe, yet contained mid-weight form with admirable depth for 13.5% alcohol. An absolute bargain at this price too.
Best drinking: good now. 17.7/20, 92/100. 13.5%, $27. The Other Wine Co. website. Would I buy? Worth a few glasses.
