About The Wine

Owen Latta's relationship with this vineyard goes back to the 1990s when he dad once made a Rosé from the fruit farmed on this block.

The Australian public wasn't quite ready for the serious style of Rosé that he was producing so the Rosé project was put on hold, but the families stayed in touch.

In 2017 Owen called them up, "How's that Pinot Gris look nowadays?" 

"Great!" came back the response, so Owen filled a couple of Picking bins a turned out this little beauty. It's fine, tense, minerally - a top notch 'fine wine' version of Pinot Gris with no additions whatsoever.

It's a gorgeous glass of wine.

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.

DDS review

Roses and Rosehip tea, pear and a little quince with a sparkling line of mineral-charged acidity through the spine. There's a nervy energy to it, absolutely clean as a whistle. Cracker wine. - Different Drop Wine Team

"From an organic vineyard set up by the notable vigneron Tamara Irish, this is pinot gris with a lot delivered though no additions. Several picks came into play, time on lees, varying fermentations (an assumption from the pale salmon colour that time on skins is in the mix). Geez, what can’t young Owen Latta do? It also emphatically shows how good/complex/interesting pinot gris can be in the right hands, and how much insipid wine is made from it on the flipside. Scents that run from citrus to red berry fruits to cranberry and back to faint herbs. The palate is just so damn delicious. A mouthful that feels zesty, textural, gently sweet, tart-bitter in the most pleasing way, great weight, a touch of crunch, superb length. It’s a serious wine yet in that you can treat it roughly and drink the living hell out of it with no issue. Indeed, it’s near perfect for multi-tasking from serious occasions right through to drinking from bottle, which I considered. The sheer visceral pleasure here is through the roof. So, so good." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?
