This summertime sipper truly lives up to its name! The mysterious blend of grapes is a pure delight to drink - full of freshness and texture. A palette of strawberries, raspberries, and cranberries is enhanced by finely shaped tannins and cassis - the proper embodiment of a wine fruit punch!
The varieties are partially co-fermented and some lots kept separate before being basket pressed to stainless steel where it rests for a few months.
Known as “the rockstar of winemaking”, Taras Ochota is the winemaker behind cult wine label Ochota Barrels. 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.
