About

Owen Latta is making some supremely interesting wines from his home in Ballarat. Sourcing and growing good fruit, expanding his winemaking mind with experimentation and patience. This is naturally fermented Sauvignon Blanc from a cool vineyard in Macedon Ranges. It spent 18 months on lees quietly picking up body and complexity before being bottled without fining or filtering. It's a unique expression of the variety, at once tactile and delicious. Mike Bennie awarded it 92 points calling it a Very good wine, but it's definitely something you should take your time with. A complex and compelling Sauvignon Blanc that took time to come into being. Owen is on to something here.

What it Tastes Like

"Spritely bouquet of ginger, lemongrass, lemon curd, pepper. In the palate, juicy, vibrant and fresh with slick of oily texture and fine chalky finish. Slick, a little too viscous for ‘easy drinking’, takes it to another level of complexity though. Has some personality that you can cling to, as it clings to your palate. Very good wine. Take time." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
