Ochota Barrels 'Mark of Cain' Pinot Meunier 2021
It’s probably not the first time something was conceived in a VW camper along the Mexican west coast. In this instance though, it was an idea. At the tail end of a world tour of wine and surf, Taras and Amber Ochota were inspired to return home and make “beautiful, holisitc” wine in South Australia. Based high up in the Basket Range of the Adelaide Hills, Ochota Barrels has become renowned globally for consistently producing some of the best wines of the Australian new wave.
2021 Mark of Cain Pinot Meunier
Planted in 1985 in the heart of the piccadilly valley. Hand-picked, wild open-ferment. Destemmed with whole bunches and a few handfuls of stalks added back gentle cap submersion by hand once a day for 7-10 days. Pressed to seasoned French barriques unfined and unfiltered. Minimal so2.
