2019 Ochota Barrels 'Slint' Chardonnay

Lenswood, South Australia

A tightly wound cool climate chardonnay from a north-facing Burgundian cloned block in Lenswood. Slightly creamy, but enough acid to hold shape and crispness in the mouth. From quartz soil surrounding the vines, there is a subtle salinity. Hand-picked late February, whole bunch pressed with full solids straight to seven seasoned troncais barriques and a newish chassin puncheon. Settled and carefully gravity racked, no additions besides minimal SO2 at bottling.

About the maker

Reportedly beginning on a surf trip in late 2000, in Mexico, in a Volkswagen, Taras and Amber Ochota decided to focus on going back to basics to create an evolving range of holistic wines.

It is the superb appreciation and understanding of past influencers and creatives in winemaking, and a collection of experiences themselves, Taras and Amber have used as the foundation for crafting Ochota Barrels. Texture, old bush vines with small yields, hand labour, indigenous yeasts, no additions and a whole lot of care make these wines exceptional.
