About The Wine

You know summer is on it's way when Taras Ochota rocks in with his Surfer Rosa, a Rosé wine picked from the same block as the Green Room Grenache Syrah.

Here, Taras picks the fruit a little earlier, while the berries are bristling with acid, blushed with colour from the Australian sun.

This is ready and raring to tackle any Sunday afternoon.

This wine makes you feel like grabbing a board and heading for the ocean, but it's not all fun and games, there's a serious side to this wine...

Nah, just kidding. This is made to be hooked into!!

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 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. Taras picks earlier than most as a general rule, so expect lighter, more ethereal wines with freshness and 'tension' as a motif.

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 vinous creations, no doubt.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Candy canes and raspberries with a crisp 'cool-mint' finish. It's fresh as a daisy, red berried and crunchy. Crystal clear acidity is the spice of this wine. It's mouthwatering finish making it impossible to refill the glass immediately. - Different Drop Wine Team
