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.

The Wine Front

"Poached strawberries, rhubarb, perfume of mint and flowers, and perhaps a little caramel too. It’s fresh and juicy, with squishy red fruit, succulence of tannin and fine cool acidity, something of a savoury sausage character, and a long spiced strawberry finish. Lovely wine. Sinewy with generosity. Fine dusty and spicy tannin lingers." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
