Winery:

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.
Making small batches from single sites selected for their ability to yield grapes of outstanding quality, & eschewing a lot of conventional techniques that seem to make for rather pedestrian booze, they believe it is of critical importance that what they produce genuinely communicates the variety, vineyard, season and combination thereof, as well as being fucking delicious.

They know there is no other choice but to embrace the ethos that wine, like a lot of the wonderful things in life, should move you. To be great it must be real, expressive & honest. So why Out of Step? Well, in this day & age who the hell would want to be in step?

Reviews/Awards:

2013 LUSATIA PARK SAUVIGNON BLANC ~ Both fermented and matured in oak, though for the most part it was used oak. It builds excellent richness through the mid-palate but the finish is tight and controlled. Snow peas, cut grass, a general sourness, a hit of gooseberry. Overall it's textural, clean and well balanced. It also has a touch of class.
92 POINTS ~ James Halliday - Wine Companion

2013 SYME ON YARRA CHARDONNAY ~ Punchy with flavour. Peach, nectarine, melon and sweet,
91 caramel-like oak. Generosity is its defining characteristic. Has just enough juice and linger on the finish to elevate it above the ruck.
