2019 The Other Wine Co. Pinot
With their big letters, clear messaging and outsized value, this is a joyful stable of contemporary ‘house’ wines by Sam Davies and the thoroughbred folks at Shaw + Smith.
Whether homing young vine fruit from top vineyards or pushing envelopes with winemaking quirks, these wines shine. This superb pinot might be declassified Tolpuddle, or perhaps drawn from epic Adelaide Hills fruit that didn’t make the exacting Shaw + Smith cut.
Wherever it’s from, this pinot is a good step up from just effortless drinkability, without the price tag.
