Ochota Barrels Texture Like Sun Sector Red 2017


Adelaide Hills blend of Pinot Noir, Grenache, Gamay, Mourvčdre, Pinot Meunier, Gewurtztraminer, Fragola, Riesling and Chardonnay.

Handpicked late February. Half whole bunch ferments, half destemmed. Cold soaked for a few daze days until wild yeast fermentation in separate vessels. Gently hand plunged. Basket pressed to old French barriques.

Red forest fruits, spice, white pepper and peat float around an undercurrent of roasted meats. The palate entry is lusciously red and supple then gives way to finely shaped tannins that are swept up by a wash of damson, cigar box, and cassis. Long, fleshy and so very drinkable.
