About The Wine
Owen Latta breaks new ground here with his first release of a red wine in the same year of vintage.
Unable to secure the Cabernet Suvignon he played with in 2019, Owen managed to get ahold of some excellent Cabernet Franc fruit from the Bress vineyard in the Harcourt Valley.
It was made with no whole bunches and no adjustments or additions whatsoever. Just grapes, fermented naturally, bottled bright and young and fresh.
It's a juicy litte jubey number and delicious as a young wine. If you're keen, try popping it in the fridge for a minute. Chill it then drill it.
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.
