About

This is the outlier in the Ochota Barrels range. The only wine Taras is not allowed to touch. This is Amber Ochota’s baby.

When his kids’ GP asked Taras if he would like the fruit from his home vineyard in the Adelaide Hills, Taras jumped at the chance. The Pinot vineyard is about the size of a tennis court, not much fruit, not much margin for error.

Amber took this as her project and made the wine the way she wanted too and despite Taras telling her at every turn what she ‘should’ be doing, she ignored it all. 100% whole bunches and left to sit and macerate for some time without a single hand touching it.

It drove Taras crazy, but as they say, the proof is in the pudding. This is goooooood pudding.

So good that Taras now copies her way of making Pinot, and he says that all his friends think that Home… is their best wine.

Only 404 bottles made and a totally charming small batch Pinot.

What It Tastes Like

94 points. “Fine, fragrant and laden with incense and exotic spice, stalks, strawberry and cherry. It’s light and playful, with a lick of kitten’s tongue tannin, cool fresh strawberry acidity, and an amaro herb laced finish of fine length. Great personality and loads of charm. What a great wine.”
