One of the most moreish Mourvedre I've ever come across. Usually the variety tends to be picked later and riper so you get quite a full bodied and tannic wine. Here, Taras Ochota has picked pretty early giving this wine freshness and vitality, perfume and florals. Superb example of the variety, but just a little lighter in body than usual. Loved it! - Chris L

Details

The ochota barrels tale began on a surf trip, late 2000 along the Mexican west coast in a Volkswagen campervan. A final destination after traveling some of the world’s most amazing wine and surf regions, Taras and Amber Ochota conceived the idea to make beautiful holistic wines back home in South Australia. After a mis-spent youth playing a rickenbakker bass in various punk bands, Taras became an Oenology graduate from Adelaide University, developing his craft in numerous vineyards and cellars around the world to then settle with Amber on 9.6 steep gorgeous acres tucked away, deep in the Basket Range of the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Before this Taras worked as the European Flying Winemaker Consultant, concentrating on the Italian regions, Puglia, Abruzzo Sicily and further,  for the Swedish wine importing company Oenoforos. California was also a regular vintage destination, making wines with producers such as KuninBonnacorsiArcadianSchraderOutpost and the famous Hitching Post’s label, Hartley-Ostini, from the movie ‘Sideways’. Amber’s wine experience ranges from vintages in Italy, vineyard development and cellar door sales in the Adelaide Hills and coordinating production and wine analysis for Nordic Sea Winery in southern Sweden. - Winery Note
