About The Wine
Another string added to Owen Latta's bow with the first release of a Riesling from this exciting young talent.
Texture and detail are always key aspects of Owen's winemaking. No different here.
The fruit comes from a vineyard about 5kms away from his winery in Ballarat. The site was planted for Owen. This is the first crop. The potential is tantalising.
Ripped with crystalline acidity and mineral elements, this is a unique look at Australian Riesling.
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.
