This wine amazes me. I mean, it's made in Adelaide Hills, not in the coldest region out there, but Ochota manages to craft it light with low residual sugar level. Unique style and sophisticated wine that requires time and effort to fully appreciate it. Cherry nut, sauerkraut, spices, strawberries, fallen leaves, dill and flowers. Delicate, delicious and easy going Pinot Noir. Has the right amount of 'craziness' in it without compromising on quality.

Natty in a good way. Not much in the way of tannin, more of a soft and approachable expression. Very vibrant red fruit once the reductive funk blows off. Strawberry, rose petal, a hint of tar - varietally correct (god I hate that term) from the opposite side of the planet. — a month ago
Almost water white with some green. Less racy then other examples. Some lime but no lime cordial. Milder vs the great Clare Valley examples — 11 days ago
Still catching up with notes from before the Cairns trip. A mature Clare Valley Riesling still with a 5+ year future. Citrus flowers of lime and lemon with a sherbet note. Developing a paraffin nuance. Drinking well with a refreshing citric acid cut to cleanse the palate. Moreish. — 23 days ago
