Not your typical Gewurz! A few hours on skins, wild fermented and lees stirring creating a aromatic, bright wine with so much to offer. It still has the pretty Turkish delight nose, typical of Gew, but with a lively fresh palate with good acidity – not downed in alcoholic viscosity like so many. A new way to drink aromatic wines. Get excited! Extremely Limited. - Chris L


Winery Note:

Lychee, tangello blossom, lavender, miya lemon and manuka honey can be detected far from the glass.


A rose petal infused lemongrass entry followed by chalky, mandarin skinned texture, forming a foundation for the jasmine and ginger infused nervy acid line which finishes long and bright.

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
