Sense of Compression Wine

Post by hellboy » Wed Nov 05, 2014 2:33 am

I Was reading an article about Mick Jagger spending some time in some Adelaide Hills wineries, and came across this interesting snippet:
Taras said he had to open yet-to-be-released wines, as Ochota Barrels is a tiny winery which sells out shortly after release. These included The Slint Vineyard Chardonnay, A Forest Pinot Noir, The Fugazi Vineyard Grenache, I am the Owl Syrah and A Sense of Compression Grenache (made in collaboration with Arizona winemaker and heavy metal rocker Maynard James Keenan from Tool).
I was intrigued, so I looked up the wineries website to find out more, and came across an article that explained the collaboration in further detail. The wine appears to be available, but is quite expensive at $100 a bottle (other wines made by these guys are also quite expensive, though this one is the highest of the lot.

If I get a chance one day, I might see if I can swing by and have a taste.
