The Story

The renowned Cult wine label of Ochota Barrels can be found in the beautiful Basket Range of Adelaide Hills. Taras Ochota, owner/purveyor takes a hands-off, minimum-intervention approach to winemaking: he picks early to maintain natural acidity, ferments using indigenous yeasts, whole-bunch presses the whites, and uses whole-bunch fermentation and longer maceration for the reds. The wines are mouthwatering and they have a compelling energy about them.

M+Q Notes

“In 1985 three clones of Gamay were planted high up in the Piccadilly valley. A few years later due to its unpopularity they were grafted to chardonnay. It wasn’t until 2013 that Taras convinced his grower mate Sam to chainsaw off the chardonnay grafts and bring back canes from the Gamay rootstock. The vineyard is the size of less than two tennis courts hence only 2428 bottles produced this year. A tightly wound classic example of Gamay which shows medicinal fragrance, savoury spiced red currents that has a polished mineral palate that is lithe, dense yet elegant in its long and pure finish. Superb.” – The Wine Front
