2016 Ochota Barrels Texture Like Sun
We say it every year... Taras Ochota's wines just get better and better. Notes from the winemaker..: Handpicked mid February. Whole berries destemmed. An Adelaide Hills blend of pinot noir, grenache, gamay, gerwurtztraminer, syrah, pinot gris, merlot, gewurtztraminer and chardonnay. This wine is all about carefully blending the nine varieties to achieve a wine that is basically and simply……delicious! Dark forest fruits, spice, licorice and peat float around an undercurrent of roasted meats. The palate entry is lusciously red and supple then gives way to finely shaped tannins that are swept up by a wash of damson, cigar box, and cassis. Long, fleshy and so very drinkable.
