Ochota Barrels, "Botanicals of the Basket Range", Aromatized Wine - 2023

Item # 45606 750mL

A highly atypical Australian wine for sure, this is an experimental project that involves a basket of every grape grown from every region in the Ochota Barrels portfolio. Everything is cofermented, and herbs and botanicals from around the winery are gathered and steeped in the wine. Grenache, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Gamay, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, and Meunier meet lemon balm, sage, mint, rosemary, elderflower, and wormwood. Pair with a long and ethereal album on vinyl.

The vast country leaves lots of room for variation, however, with its many terroirs each yielding distinctively styled wines. The climate of South Australia’s McLaren Vale district is heavily influenced by the ocean; wines here typically show savory notes of olive and spice on the nose and deep berry flavors on the palate....

Gewürztraminer

You won't likely forget your first "Gewürz," as they're some of the most distinctive and recognizable wines in the world. They are usually heavily perfumed with rich lychee and rose aromas. The variety is cultivated all over the world, but the best examples tend to come from Alsace: these are full-bodied wines with a golden color.

During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking world. It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...
