As far as wine projects go, this is at the pointy end of exciting.
Winemaker and rock star extraordinaire MJ Keenan (Tool, Pucifer) and Ochota barrels winemaker and music lover Taras, have joined forces to create a wine of immense personality. There is a backstory of course, which involves a mutual love of music and a shared philosophy of less is more, low intervention winemaking which gave birth to this project.
At its core, a belief in less winemaking tricks and wines that maintain and celebrate a coiled tightness... A sense of compression..
Limited in supply, a fleeting chance to grab something special.
Cured meats, hand crafted of course, with a great album playing in the background.
Ochota Barrels is based in Lenswood, in the cool high altitude climate of Adelaide Hills. Taras and Amber Ochota conceived of Ochota Barrels as a way to produce small batch super premium single vineyard wines sourced from magnificent old vineyard sites in McLaren Vale, Barossa and Adelaide Hills. Both are accomplished winemakers who have travelled and worked in California, Italy and Sweden. In Australia Taras worked at Two Hands and Nepenthe. Their winemaking approach is minimalist. Hand harvested fruit is partially whole bunch basket pressed, fermented with native yeast, and bottled unfined and unfiltered.
