Tasting Notes

The wine's name comes from the symbol on the back of Taras' amplifier - "which just looks pretty cool". This is the Ochotas top Chardonnay, a fine and lean (no malolactic fermentation), yet powerful expression of Chardonnay which needs at least 6 months bottle age to fall into its stride. Plenty of battonage fills the wine out and adds complexity, but don't miss the mineral line that runs throughout. It's amazing! - Chris L

The ochota barrels tale began on a surf trip, late 2000 along the Mexican west coast in a Volkswagen campervan. A final destination after traveling some of the world's most amazing wine and surf regions, Taras and Amber Ochota conceived the idea to make beautiful holistic wines back home in South Australia. After a mis-spent youth playing a rickenbakker bass in various punk bands, Taras became an Oenology graduate from Adelaide University, developing his craft in numerous vineyards and cellars around the world to then settle with Amber on 9.6 steep gorgeous acres tucked away, deep in the Basket Range of the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Before this Taras worked as the European Flying Winemaker Consultant, concentrating on the Italian regions, Puglia, Abruzzo Sicily and further, for the Swedish wine importing company Oenoforos. California was also a regular vintage destination, making wines with producers such as Kunin, Bonnacorsi, Arcadian, Schrader, Outpost and the famous Hitching Post's label, Hartley-Ostini, from the movie 'Sideways'. Amber's wine experience ranges from vintages in Italy, vineyard development and cellar door sales in the Adelaide Hills and coordinating production and wine analysis for Nordic Sea Winery in southern Sweden. - Winery Note
