Ochota Barrels 'The Green Room' Grenache 2020
Grapes: Grenache (100%)

Style: Bright. Floral. Light.
Ochota Barrels represents one of Australia's truly boundary-pushing winemakers, that over the years have developed in a genuine cult-status internationally. Minimal intervention paired with an early-picking rule of thumb leads to refreshingly bright wines such as this lovely and light Grenache.
It's very easy drinking with a bit of delicacy and detail chucked in.
From the Wine Maker - "Lifted spice, Satsuma plum compote and a herbal thread of thyme with white pepper entwine the strikingly fragrant bouquet of bouillon. The palate entry is opulent yet nervy with medium bodied savoury, (almost Pinot like) finely grained textural components resembling pomegranate and lingonberry." - Taras Ochota
