"In addition to my previous comments, I must state that this article is delectable, with a magnificent lingering aroma. An extremely well made product."

"Exclusive use (If this is the case) of Chardonnay grapes makes this product taste like no other Cognac or Brandy. This is fine if it is the brief; needs synergy of other varietals.

Bass & Flinders Distillery Ochre Aged Grape Spirit (700ml)

Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
$185.00 Bottle
  • ABV 45%

A first of its kind in Australia, Ochre is double distilled in a copper Alembic still on the Mornington Peninsula from Chardonnay grapes grown at Red Hill. Maturation takes place in 330-litre and 110-litre French oak barrels have been previously used to store aged grape spirit for 25 years in France.

Master Distiller, Bob Laing comments, "We aspired to produce a world-class aged spirit. A spirit that could not only match its international counterparts but also capture the essence of the ‘Australian spirit’ in a bottle. It was natural therefore, to look to France for inspiration on their production methods of aged grape spirits to guide us in the way we make this product. The result is a beautifully handcrafted Australian style aged spirit.”

Tasting note: Ideal clarity to the bright pure gold colour. Nosing yields rich, soft and pure aromas of apricot tart, prune, followed by fruit’n’nut chocolate, with later passes accenting fruit cake and clove. Entry is soft, medium dry; mid palate ups the intensity and is more grappa-like offering rich fruit cake, dried apricot and sweet spices to finish. Excellent length. Ends pleasantly warming, mildly tannic, waxy and lively. Vibrant, complex and different. 45% Alc./Vol.
