Here’s one of Australia’s (anywhere?) best rose wines.
About the Wine
Here is the newest Rose from Owen Latta, the next generation winemaker at Ballarat boutique producer, Eastern Peake. A dead serious Rosé made with intent and supreme craftsmanship.
The Pinot Noir fruit sees more than a year on lees after being barrel fermented, a long, slow process to get to bottle and it's entirely worth the wait. In Mike Bennie’s highest Rose score of the year of 95 points he wrote, "Here’s one of Australia’s (anywhere?) best rose wines." is a big call, but you try it for yourself, it is outrageously delicious.
One word of warning, this is highly addictive, something you may need more than just one bottle.
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.
