The cool, marine climate of McLaren Vale just South of Adelaide makes it home to an elegant style of wine. Taras and Amber Ochota are both accomplished winemakers, with experience around the world. Organically grown, old-vines with 92% Grenache and 8% Syrah, were handpicked early in the morning from three sites in the western reaches of the Vale, then cold soaked for four days (85% whole bunch) until fermentation occurred spontaneously. The juice spent 6-8 days on skins with frequent pigeage. After the ferment ceased, it was basket pressed to neutral barrels for 2 months of aging. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal SO2.
