Description

Otro Vino = other wine. Adventurous, creative, exotic, and explorative hand-crafted wines.


Vintage 2019

The super cool 2019 vintage created some crazy challenges from budburst through to ripening. Unseasonal humidity, light rain and no wind was enough to tear your hair out. On the flip side, the flavour and acid profile in all our white wines are intense and packed full of flavour.

Winemaking

Hand-picked when tasty. Whole bunch pressed. 100% wild fermented in 5+ year old French oak barriques, to ensure a pure fruit flavour. No fining and filtration.

Taste

Elegant, textural and a bit wild. Focused fruit is bound by texture and stimulates the palate. Aromas of jasmine jump out of the glass, followed by fresh nectarine, peach and pink grapefruit. A tight and focused palate of citrus and grapefruit and hints of nectarine driving the wine through the palate. Keeps you wanting more. Sexy.

 GOLD Medal - Wine Show of WA 2020

 94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

 93 Points - Ray Jordan, The West Australian
"Here is a back-to-basics sort of wine. All wild fermented in older oak and then stirred. The aromas are engaging with grapefruit and lime zest complementing a slightly savoury element. The palate is tight and tense with the fine acid sustaining the long finish. A most interesting wine providing an alternative. Unfined and unfiltered."
