About the Wine
This is the first ever release of a Pinot Meunier from Taras Ochota.
A small vineyard in Piccadilly that was planted 30 years ago has yielded "something very special" in the 2017 vintage, according to Taras.
No whole bunches, no wild stalkiness, no new oak - just an articulate, fruit-driven expression of Pinot Meunier which will not be around long.
Only two barrels made.
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.
