The Other Right - Shapeshifter 2020
Region: Adelaide Hills
Organically farmed Viognier, Grown by Mike and Margaret Sparrow in Mt. Torrens, Adelaide Hills. This release would normally be their 'Sunshine On My Skin' but instead shows the pairs' deft ability to think on their feet. After the 2019 fires, concerns over potential smoke taint led them to the decision to limit skin contact on this wine, which proved to be the right move. The resultant wine is an (almost) white with great zest, energy and texture. Necessity truly is the mother of invention.
