Ochota Barrels 2017 A ForestOchota Barrels
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Region: Adelaide Hills, SA
Taras and Amber Ochota are passionate about Pinot, and this is another excellent release of 'A Forest'.
Taras has approached this wine differently in the last couple of releases - going for a more hands-off and gentle winemaking approach. It's untouched and even more hands-off than what he is usually comfortable with. It's wild fermented, hand-plunged with 85% whole bunches, basket-pressed into seasoned French barriques.
It's unfined and unfiltered with next-to-no sulphur added.
This is an untamed, alluring Pinot full of complexity and intrigue. Not your typical Hills Pinot and absolutely worth trying!
