2018 Ochota Barrels "Fugazi Vineyard" Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1487161 95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark So often my favourite release from this estate, its perennial deliciousness has raised the bar across many of the other new releases. Kirsch, bergamot, amaro, sandalwood and dark cherry, with a marrow of juiciness curtailed around the seams by the gentle grip of fibrous, beautifully judged whole-bunch tannins. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A very fresh and exotic array of nectarines and clingstone peaches here with a core of wild raspberries and gentle, pepper and spice lift. The palate has a very vibrant and quite assertively structured feel. Plums and blueberries are framed in sturdy shape at the finish. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Former punk rocker Taras Ochota is one of the most renowned artisanal producers in Australia, having carved a reputation from his hilly spot in the Basket Range subregion of the Adelaide Hills for solid, highly characterful wines. Grenache is his calling card, and Fugazi one of his most celebrated wines. This vintage is confident and complex yet approachable. It sings notes of brambly fruit and balsamic vinegar with fistfuls of wildflowers and savory herbs. The grip of skinsy, raspy tannins on the tongue comes as a surprise at first, but then the juicy red fruit rushes in, taunting you to take another sip. Drink now-2027, at least. Inner quote mark (4/2020)
