Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of May we are focusing on the many expressions of Pinot Noir that don’t hail from Burgundy or California. All throughout the winemaking world, producers have been inspired by the great Pinot Noirs of Burgundy and in their own time, have done their best to capture lightning in a bottle. All month you will be surprised at the versatility of Pinot Noir, shocked that you aren’t drinking Burgundy and stunned that this grape can achieve such diversity. We look forward to your feedback on where the “other” great Pinot Noirs express best.”
This week featuring: Ochota Barrels Pinot Noir A Forest, Adelaide Hills 2016
While most like to assume that all the wine from Australia is grown in hot, desert-like conditions, Adelaide Hills is a region that will quickly help you cool your jets. A Forest is a Pinot Noir from Ochota Barrels grown at very high altitudes at the base of Mount Barker, overlooking the St. Vincent Gulf. These conditions allow Pinot Noir to show off its bright cherry fruit and floral notes. At $18 a glass, not only should you expect to get excited about Australian Pinot Noir, but also whatever Ochota Barrels has in store for us next.
