The Other Right Description
Alex Schulkin + Galit Shachaf.
We are husband & wife duo.
Dreaming + teaming in Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
We love making things. Some useful things, some nice things, mostly tasty things. It gets nice when we can ferment them things.
The Other Right is our little family's wine enterprise.
Our approach is a seemingly lazy one. Winemaking operations are kept to the reasonable minimum. No unnecessary action is taken. Using fewer tools requires a lot of attention to detail, patience, creativity and problem solving. No additives are being used, letting the wine evolve slowly, according to its natural rhythm. Youth and freshness are to shine through, forming wine that is wild, vigorous and full of life.
Our grapes are sourced from around the Adelaide Hills with the exception of a wild-grown Shiraz we found and fell in love with in Sellicks Hill.
As from vintage 2016 all of our fruit is coming from vineyards which are managed by organic and sustainable farming practices.
THE OTHER RIGHT
The name ‘The Other Right’ started as a family joke after Galit found it challenging to distinguish between right and left, giving driving directions with shouts like "Not This right, the Other right!!!".
It also resonates with us as The Other Right stands for an alternative.
'Right' is a subjective concept. Having heard many times of the Right way (in life, winemaking, you name it) but believing there is more than right and wrong, we started making wine under The Other Right label in 2012.
We love making people see things differently. We love a challenge. We love creating things that push the boundaries and are exciting, yet simple and approachable. Most of all we're trying to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously.
Our wines are an expression of us; sometimes a little rough on the edges, full of contradictions. They carry our thoughts, passions, dreams, foot and hand print. We see them as living things; untamed, happy and free spirited.
We would love to think that when you drink our wine, you're a part of our world.
Thank you for sharing this journey with us!

Wine Notes: Ernst’s vineyard yielded super light crop in 2020, less than 1.5t/ha. This meant lots of stems, lots of skins, little juice - which all manifest concentration.
Like its predecessors, lots of juicy vibe, a winter warmer, with a strong graphite backbone.
Ernst’s relentless attention and care shine in every mouthful.
Organically farmed Shiraz, Sellicks Hill, Mclaren Vale. Grown by Ernst Sigel
