"Classic Taras Ochota legacy living large here, and this is a great release. A questioning and unusual mind, that man had, though he also had the technical chops to get things right. Anyway, with a tear to the eye, tasting this wine which includes – sage, wild fennel, wormwood, elderflower, lemon balm, bay leaf, river mint, rosemary, lemon verbena, rose petals. Mad fucker to think of it, but here we are. 588 bottles.
Fresh, lively, just picked strawberry with all the vermouth like herbs and perfume and floral things packed in. It’s light, bitter, slightly sweet, slightly sour, has a little chop of tannin, and kind of rewrites what we think a wine can be. It won’t be for everyone, but with a cube of ice, and a wry smile, you’re on for a very bloody good time with this. I bloody love it."
