About The Wine

Another stunning wine from one of Victoria's most energised young winemakers, Owen Latta.

For this wine, Owen extends beyond the family vineyard in Ballarat to source of some of the country's classiest Nebbiolo in the Lansborough region of the Pyrenees. In Owen's hands, this fruit sings.

It's made with no additions save a little SO2 at bottling, a natural rugged vibe mainlined through the mouthpiece of the Nebbiolo grape.

Australian terroir and next-gen lo-fi winemaking working in perfect partnership. Nebbiolo lovers, your next dinner party is sorted!

About Latta / Eastern Peake

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 Own Latta is one of Australia's finest young winemakers.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The two vineyard parcels were kept separate in fermentation & élevage, I applied many different techniques learnt from being around wineries all my life. Single batches of varying percentages of whole bunch, time on skins, ageing length in cask. The wine just looked so complete as one unit together to represent the Landsbrough Valley. It has been a patient waiting game, very excited to get this out!

Halliday Wine Companion

"Fermented in small, wax-lined concrete vats; with a smattering of whole-bunch and the ebbs of indigenous yeast and lactic bacteria, this is a stylish wine that reminds one of pinot, before the dry structural focus of nebbiolo comes charging across the mouth, enforced by an extended post-ferment maceration. A delicious wine, packed with dark cherry, wood smoke, sandalwood, licorice amaro and herb, before a punctuation of briar and espresso tannins, chewy and nourishing." - Ned Goodwin MW (Halliday Wine Companion)
