Red Wine /// A shit tonne of varieties // Adelaide Hills / Australia
The label may be completely illegible with its utterly lurid and almost painful yellow label. “That’s the idea”, says Taras Ochota. “It’s something in a clear bottle, nothing to hide, yummy”. It’s 50% destemmed and 50% whole berry (with a lot of solids) Pinot Noir, Grenache, Gamay, Mourvedre, Pinot Meunier, Gewurtztraminer, Fragola, Riesling & Chardonnay. This wine is all about carefully blending the nine varieties to achieve a wine that is basically and simply…delicious! 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. ‘Texture like sun’ are words extracted from the song ‘Golden Brown’ by The Stranglers. “We had it play at our wedding”, TARAS OCHOTA
 
Red forest fruits, spice, white pepper and peat float around an undercurrent of roasted meats. The palate 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. 92 POINTS, JAMES SUCKLING
