Ochota Barrels Kids Of The Black Hole Riesling 2019 750ml
Adelaide Hills, South Australia
The mysteriously named "Kids of the Black Hole" is a Riesling with charisma oozing from every vinous pore.
There are no tricks in the winemaking, it's clean and pure with the signature Ochota Barrels attack in the mouth. It comes as no surprise if you've tried his Gewurz but the man knows his way around an aromatic white.
