About the Wine

The 2013 incarnation of this wine was a work between Taras Ochota and Maynard Keenan of US Supergroup, Tool.

After they established a friendship at Keenan's winery in Arizona, the sharing of both musical and vinous ideas culminated in this cult hero wine collaboration.

Though Maynard wasn't directly involved in this issue, he still consults on the project and Taras has kept it true to the philosophy, though constantly refining the style.

Old vine Grenache. A twist of Gewurz. Just one barrel made. For those of you who love a wine with a story, this is good as they come...

About Ochota Barrels

The term “rockstar winemaker” gets thrown around a lot these days but Taras Ochota, owner/purveyor of cult wine label Ochota Barrels, is the real deal.

His grungy, minimalist attitude towards his label has seen him gain huge cult status internationally as one of the most boundary pushing “conceptual” winemakers in Australia. From his home in the beautiful Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills, Taras and his wife Amber craft small batches of wine from surrounding vineyards in the Hills and special sites across McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley.

These are highly sought after and extremely limited wines which have a pulsating energy and drive to them. Some of the country's most exciting wines, no doubt.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Hyperspace aromatics. Red berries, cherries, flowers and cardamon. It's light and tight and it seduces slowly. Soft silk sheets of tannin. A chomp of fine-knit tannin. It's so smooth and slippery. It's Grenache at its most pretty and ethereal. Wicked wine.
