About The Wine
Owen Latta has a great touch with Pinot Gris.
He manages to pack an incredible amount of flavour into a relatively light frame.
This is a new vineyard for Owen in 2018, but it was handled in much the same way as the 2017 release.
A lick of skin contact lends a slight onion skin colour, the texture here is really something else.
If you want to see Pinot Gris made as a fine wine, this is the perfect place to start.
About Eastern Peake / Latta Vino
Is anyone working as hard as Owen Latta to put Ballarat in the mix of Australia's foremost wine regions? At only 15 years old he completed his first vintage at Eastern Peake alongside his father and has since taken on the full-time running of the business.
Owen is the man primarily responsible for both the Eastern Peake and Latta wines, the former of which being dedicated to premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Eastern Peake vineyard, and the latter being Owen's personal project all about innovation from a range of excellent central Victorian vineyards.
The wines are all gently brought to life with very astute yet hands-off winemaking, and Owen's low and zero-sulphur wines are some of the best examples in the country. These are thrilling, absolutely unique Victorian wines, and quite simply Owen Latta is one of Australia's finest young winemakers.
