About The Wine

This is another home run for this exceptional, original winemaking talent.

Here's a great example of Owen Latta's explorative winemaking mind. This is a fascinating depiction of Sauvignon Blanc from a quartz riddled vineyard in Moonambel, Pyrenees.

It's treated oxidatively, with a long and slow ferment followed by lees contact and full malo-lactic fermentation, and zero SO2 added at any point. It's an exciting wine for those who are exploring the multifaceted nature of Sauvignon Blanc and a great representation of the originality of this awesome Victorian producer. 

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sauvignon Blanc from the Mullens vineyard in Moonambel, Pyrenees Victoria. Great people who love their vineyard. This is a seriously good piece of ground. The vineyard has been dry grown now for over 10 years on quartz theres very minimal top soil, it doesn’t make any sense why it is what it is but thats the beauty. Cropped at 1.2 ton to the acre.

Four picks over 4 weeks all whole bunch pressed straight to stainless to ferment on its own with zero additions. Left to rest on full lees for 10 months.

Blend : Sauvignon Blanc (100%)
ABV : 12%

Critic Reviews

DDS review

Creamy leesy goodness, some sea spray notes, salted baked figs and a crucshed rock minerality. Man this is compelling drinking. It's got some ripe fruit - more gauva and stonefruit than passionafruit but it's al the more savoury/umami aspects of the wine that suck you in. Great drink. Great take on SB. Great stuff from Owen. - Different Drop Wine Team

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 designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. 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 consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
