The wine world is reeling after the loss of one of the industry's true visionaries, Taras Ochota, founder of the highly sought after cult Adelaide Hills label Ochota Barrels. Regularly seen as the Patron Saint of so-called natural wine, Taras was making clean and delicious wines devoid of chemicals and intervention long before so-called natural wine was a thing.
We have found a cache of a few of Taras' 2017 releases. These wines sell out every year and are rarer than hen's teeth on a normal day, making these 4 reds collectors items. The wines are: Texture Like Sun 2017, The Green Room 2017, I am the Owl Syrah & The Fugazi Grenache.
