Ochota Barrels ‘Weird Berries In The Woods’ Gewürztraminer 2012

From an Adelaide Hills vineyard and the mad hands of Taras Ochota. He sent a cautionary note with the wines, a kind of ‘whoa, see what you think of 2012 up in the Hills’ kind of feel. It went something like ‘with the vins… into them straight up if you like. Bam! I was onto them all last night and I’m still alive’. Ahh, blessed honesty.

Gewürztraminer is a funny old nugget for me. I rarely look to drink the stuff, don’t usually have it in the roster, but often really enjoy it when under the microscope, so to speak. Anyway, this one is made with little between vine and bottle, and designated on the back label as ‘mode: dry and textural’. 427 bottles were produced.
