Ochota Barrels parcel

Test any preconceptions you have about Aussie reds.

We are really getting behind a fairly new estate from The Adelaide Hills that is starting to make waves (appropriate as the owners are keen surfers) and some bloody amazing wines that will test any preconceptions you have about Aussie reds. Taras Ochota’s wines are of a different stamp altogether. He and wife Amber are making wines of extraordinary finesse, energy and elan, minimal intervention, small batch production, everything done by hand – that are unlike just about anything I have tried from the country.

Jamie Goode has previously given the Ochota Barrels Shellac Syrah 96 points and their Fugazi Grenache (both wines like all those from the estate named after Taras’ favourite alternative rock bands!) 94 points and Jancis Robinson chose 2013 Fugazi as one of her top wines of 2014 for the FT saying "there's real vibrance to this. Pure fruit and so unlike the headbutting Aussies of old. Well done. Dry finish. Real structure. Is this the most refreshing Grenache on the planet?".

The Case:

Ochota Barrels Fugazi Grenache 2016, 6 bottles
Ochota Barrels Shellac Syrah 2014, 6 bottles

(the parcel is available in bond; please contact us if you are interested)

NB - we also have very small quantities of the top top Grenache (6x half cases only!) – Sense of Compression which is blended with 2% Gewurztraminer and is a simply mind expanding combination of density and lightness, of richness and vivacity, old and new school worlds colliding. Buying the mixed case above also enables you to access a half case.
