Ochota Barrels Weird Berries in the Woods Gewurztraminer 2020 - Adelaide Hills
Bottle size: 750ml
Not your typical super-aromatic Gewurtz, Weird Berries is savoury and textured with a little phenolic grip from some skin contact. The aromatic signature of the variety isn’t entirely lost with some Turkish delight and citrus peel on the nose. Taras says “Whatever they teach you to do when making aromatic whites, I just go and do the opposite”!
Weird Berries In The Woods Gewurztraminer (12.6%, $37) – Barrel and lees work here. Daily barrel rolling too. Kiwi fruit and gooseberry tartness, citrusy tang, some leafy green herbs. Tight and tar, lively and fresh but with a slipperiness inherent too, puckering finish with bitter-herbal tonic-like character, faintest ashy-earthy note. Very delicious, easy to drink. Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
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.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
