2017 Latta Rattlesnake Blanc

Ballarat, VIC

A blend of 5 different skin contact ferments of unspecified varieties - another out of the box hit from this winemaking wizard...



About The Wine

We've got a live one here!

This is Owen Latta's crazy skinzy concoction of Viognier, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay,  Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer.

The Chardonnay was fermented on the Pinot Gris skins, the Pinot Noir was fermented on the Gewürz skins, multiple picks, mad ferments, all equalling one mind-bending and outrageously delicious glass of wine.

If you're checking out skin contact white wines, this is an epic place to start. It's vibrant and mercurial with twists and turns from sip to sip.

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Peach iced tea and a little nectarine, some crazy floral notes and spices galore. A tactile grip through the mouth, the refreshment factor is pretty high here, as is the freak factor, but it's also so damn easy to drink. Some strange herbal tea notes, stone fruit and citrus going this way and that. Rad. - Different Drop Wine Team
