2021 Ochota Barrels Where's The Pope? Syrah
From a vineyard planted in 1996 on schist soils in McLaren Vale. A serious and structured Syrah with flavours of sweet berries, sweet herbs, green peppery, undergrowth characters, and anise notes with fine tannins.
Unfined and unfiltered, wild ferments. Minimal so2.
It's bitter sweet but we feel incredibly privileged to have the spring release from Ochota Barrels. After the tragic passing of Taras Ochota last year, his wife Amber Ochota has grabbed the reins. Amber was already a large part of the business and winemaking process and as in past years Louis Schofield and Taras’ dad, Yari have helped out, this year they have again made something to be proud of.
