A rich assemblage of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Frank from Yin Barun Vineyard, Merlot from the Gralaine property near Geelong and Petit Verdot from Colbinabbin Estate at Heathcote. Hanging Rock Wines know about the noble French varietals, the estate patriarch has received French Australian Chamber of Commerce Flair Award for fostering French Australian relations. Hanging Rock's young French team have treated this complex cepage of fruit to a highly stylized vinification that's aimed at the modern Australian palate.
Crafted by Hanging Rock's master winemaker John Ellis, the philosophy behind Odd One Out is simple, to construct an intriguing red blend for those who seek something different, those who don't follow the crowd. This unique mix of fruit displays a European eccentricity while being distinctly Australian. The label illustration by Nigel Buchanan, of three Australian-esque clowns, complete with oversized RM Williams boots, was inspired by old European lithographic prints. Look closely and you'll see one of the characters adopting a different stance to his mates, the Odd One Out. Look even closer and you'll notice a made in Australia tag, spotty sock and larrikin expression. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep purple colour with plum hue. Peppery bouquet with liquorice and clove. The palate is defined by blueberries and savoury notes for a rich and smooth Cabernet wine showing silky tannins underpinned by a long finish and refreshing acid structure. Enjoyable right now, Odd One Out is a food lovers choice and would go down very well with stews or gamey meats.

About Hanging Rock Winery
All his time spent working as a drink waiter and cellar manager while failing veterinary science, must have made an impression on John Ellis
Ellis graduated as Dux of his winemaking course from Roseworthy College in 1971 and began his illustrious winemaking career at Krondorf and Yalumba wineries. In 1974 John went to the Hunter Valley to become the foundation winemaker at the newly established Rosemount Estate. Within two years John had put Rosemount Estate on the map internationally and made a name for himself as one of the young Turks of the industry. The next move came in 1978 when John, with his wife Ann Tyrrell, went to Echuca on the Murray River in Victoria, to help establish the Tisdall Winery. Tisdall quickly became a high profile and successful brand in the seventies and early eighties, enjoying something of a cult following. Hanging Rock»
