2017 Ochota Barrels A Forest
Always good to have this juice in the shop. Notes from Taras Ochota..: A strikingly floral nose of crushed petals and stems sets this liquid’s framework. Garrigue and Nordic forest undergrowth taunts damson fruit, pain d’epice and subtle peaty elements into a convincing show of rusticity. The delicate sappiness holds the taut, yet compact and textural palate in a state of flux, whilst tarry red currents and slightly meaty components enfold long with a savoury egress. Through the experience a medicinal quality flutters, reminiscent of billie hoke, which cannot be ignored by the further travelled. Once opened this wine will move considerably after day one with more flamboyant adjectives that will make this tasting note seem 101 standard issue.
