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

From the estate grown, north facing Burgundian Chardonnay clone vineyard. The wine sits in mostly old oak barrels and undergoes malolactic fermentation as well as lees stirring. This cool climate Chardonnay has complexity and elegance. Green apple and smoky minerality on the nose with grapefruit acidity and citrus zest combining with a briney savoury quality on the palate. The flavours keep evolving and lingering after each sip.
