Based in the Yarra Valley & established in 2012, Out of Step Wine Co is what happens when two former music junkies decide to get serious about indulging an ever-growing parallel obsession with fermented grape juice. Their approach is simple, although the wines themselves are anything but.

Hand-picked, pressed direct to French oak (5% new) for wild fermentation, including partial mlf. There's no mucking around, this is in the heart of the Out of Step style, penetrating and complex, insisting you taste it (you won't be sorry), even if you don't like sauvignon blanc. It is racy, raw, and is real wine. 530 dozen made. Drink by: 2023; Price: $34.00; Alcohol: 12.5%; Rating: 96 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Pristine sauvignon blanc. It feels incredibly pure. It's steely and rind-like though it's also juicy and fresh. A background of herbs, a vanilla bean/honeysuckle note, citrus and gooseberry, the latter adding power and drive rather than breadth. Pure class from start to finish, and it will improve with a little extra time in bottle too. Drink: 2018-2022+; Rated: 94 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

Left of centre Sauv Blanc to put you in the stretch zone. This is all hands off and taste buds on. A textural beast, ginger nut biscuit spice taps to a neat beat. Licks of creamy due to barrel fermentation in old oak, scents of green pineapple husk with a dry grassy thing happening too. Tight in the mouth, null green apple crunch leads to a long finish. One for the adventurous, but if different is your thing, this may well be your nectar. Tasty stuff. Rating: 93 Points; QWine

The OoS team are not only raising the bar for Sauvignon Blanc production in Australia, I'd actually hazard they're redefining the rules. What I love here is the freshness, the acidity that just gives so much energy, and totally lacking the shrill that so often afflicts the variety. It feels so pure, so fresh. Redefining the variety.
