Ochota Barrels The Fugazi Vineyard Grenache
Old vine blockbuster quality from Down Under
- McLaren Vale, South Australia, Australia
Taras and Amber Ochota make premium single vineyard blends from sites in different parts of South Australia. Fugazi is made from a parcel of old vine Grenache and is named (like most of their cuvées) after an American Punk band.
The Ochotas are part of a new wave of Aussie producers trying to make wines with more elegance and balance - so fine wines but more drinkable than some of the blockbusters of the past.
"A very fresh and exotic array of nectarines and clingstone peaches here with a core of wild raspberries and gentle, pepper and spice lift. The palate has a very vibrant and quite assertively structured feel. Plums and blueberries are framed in sturdy shape at the finish. Drink or hold." 94/100 James Suckling
