Tasting Notes

Skin contact Viognier. Again, what a season! If last year it was a lot of Viognier with a bit of spice, now the spice is really leading the show. Ginger, apricot and bergamot gave way to green black pepper and cardamom, but, of course, it is still an orange Viognier. Really unique, we might not see it doing the same thing next year. - Winery Note

Although having only launched their label in 2012, husband and wife team Alex Schulkin and Galit Shachaf have contributed an enormous amount to the natural wine movement in the Adelaide Hills, and indeed, the wine industry in general.

Their wines are exceptional examples of minimal intervention winemaking, produced without additions or subtractions of any kind. They are expressive, pure and most importantly, delicious! Perhaps this isn't surprising when you know that Alex has worked as a scientist at the Australian Wine Research Institute for the last 10 years. Well, you've got to know the rules before you can break them, right? Alex describes his wines as pushing the boundaries. But they are also wonderfully approachable. His philosophy is simple -

"Our approach is a seemingly lazy one. Winemaking operations are kept to the reasonable minimum. No unnecessary action is taken. Using fewer tools requires a lot of attention to detail, patience, creativity and problem solving. No additives are being used, letting the wine evolve slowly, according to its natural rhythm. Youth and freshness are to shine through, forming wine that is wild, vigorous and full of life."

It's their quest to do things differently that ultimately led to the name, The Other Right. "Right" is a subjective concept, and Alex and Galit believe that it is oversimplifying things to reduce them down to "right" or "wrong." Especially in winemaking, where surely flavour is king.
