Winemaker Notes

The term ‘The Green Room’ refers to a performer (or wine in this case) that is not quite ready for the big stage. While this offering may not be the most well-known of Taras’ wines, it will soon see its time on stage. It is made in a very approachable and slurpable style, yet a wine that pleases the other senses as much as the palate. This wine is all about coiled tension.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

There’s an array of bright, light red cherries and berries on offer here with a lightly spicy and peppery edge. Sleek and fresh, this has attractive crunch and kick. Effortlessly cool. A blend of 92% grenache and 8% syrah. Drink now. Screw cap.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Much more Grenache than Syrah (92% to 8%), the 2018 The Green Room Grenache Syrah weighs in at a modest 11.4% alcohol. Herbal, stemmy notes accent delicate cherry and raspberry fruit in this silky-textured but youthfully tannic wine.

Ochota Barrels Winemaker Taras Ochota Winery Image

The ochota barrels tale began on a surf trip, late 2000 along the Mexican west coast in a Volkswagen campervan. A final destination after traveling some of the world’s most amazing wine and surf regions, Taras and Amber Ochota conceived the idea to make beautiful holistic wines back home in South Australia.

After a mis-spent youth playing a rickenbakker bass in various punk bands, Taras became an Oenology graduate from Adelaide University, developing his craft in numerous vineyards and cellars around the world to then settle with Amber on 9.6 steep gorgeous acres tucked away, deep in the Basket Range of the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

Before this Taras worked as the European Flying Winemaker Consultant, concentrating on the Italian regions, Puglia, Abruzzo Sicily and further, for the Swedish wine importing company Oenoforos.

California was also a regular vintage destination, making wines with producers such as Kunin, Bonnacorsi, Arcadian, Schrader, Outpost and the famous Hitching Post’s label, Hartley-Ostini, from the movie ‘Sideways’.

Amber’s wine experience ranges from vintages in Italy, vineyard development and cellar door sales in the Adelaide Hills and coordinating production and wine analysis for Nordic Sea Winery in southern Sweden.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre form the base of the classic Rhône Red Blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. Though they originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley, with some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in other countries. Somm Secret—Putting their own local spin on the Rhône Red Blend, those from Priorat often include Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
