Crafted by master winemaker John Ellis of Hanging Rock fame, Odd One Out is an intriguing range of high quality, food friendly wines that’s bound to surprise and delight. The philosophy behind Odd One Out is simple. To create exceptional wines for those who seek something different, those who don’t follow the crowd and who seek the unusual.
This unique brand displays a European eccentricity while being distinctly Australian; that is left of centre without being intimidating. The labels illustration (by Nigel Buchanan) of three Australian-esque clowns, complete with oversized RM Williams boots, was inspired by old European lithographic prints. Nigel’s beautiful hand drawn illustrations are created with meticulous attention to detail. Look closely and you’ll see one character adopts a different stance to his fellow label mates – the Odd One Out. Look even closer and you’ll notice miniscule details - a ‘Made in Australia’ tag on the boots, a spotty sock, a cheeky expression.
The brand was released in July 2008 with an initial four varieties - Pinot Gris, Verdelho, Cabernets & Nebbiolo Rosé (SOLD OUT). 2009 has seen Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Noir & Viognier added to the range.
