Ochota Barrels The Slint Chardonnay
The palate is taut and precise, and finishes long with powerful elegance.
- South Australia, Australia
Taras and Amber Ochota make premium single vineyard blends from sites in different parts of South Australia. 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.
The grapes are sourced from coolest section of the Adelaide Hills, planted at a steep 550 metres above sea level. Soils are composed primarily of fractured rocky ironstone with quartz deposits throughout, and vines average 14 years of age.
A tightly wound, cool climate Chardonnay, with a nose of granny smith apples and honeysuckle spice, that opens up to notes of gun flint, bee’s wax and lemon rind. The palate is taut and precise, and finishes long with powerful elegance.
