2019 Ochota Barrels She's Lost Control
Notes from the guru himself, Taras Ochota..: Fragola is a very rare variety in Australia which is also known as Isabella or Odessa. A few canes smuggled from Calabria in the late eighties were planted to make family wine for an Italian family that settled to the Piccadilly Valley Adelaide Hills in the 1950’s. It is the only vineyard that Taras has ever been in that you can actually smell the fruit down the row ….and that fruit is frijolas and strawberries. The aromatics in the wine are equally insane with quite estery characters ranging from frijolas, strawberries, tar, mentholime to Nordic forest berries, strudel and pain d’epice. The palate is compact, nervy and very vibrantly red….if you could taste the colour red… this is it.
