2023 Ochota Barrels ‘Texture like sun’ red
'This wine is all about carefully blending specific barriques of the 6 varieties to achieve a wine that is basically and simply......delicious! Hence the yellow label you can’t really read in dim light. Red forest fruits, spice, white pepper and peat float around an undercurrent of roasted meats. The palate entry 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 bright. So very drinkable.'
- Amber Ochota
This wine is named after a lyric of Amber and the late Taras' wedding song 'Golden Brown' by The Stranglers.
