Winery: Latta Vino
Region: Ballarat - Victoria
Winemaker: Owen Latta
Varietal(s): 100% Pinot Gris
Slippery, detailed wine of fragrance and deliciousness. Easy on the palate in its silky, smooth way, good inward concentration of nashi pear, light red berry, a lick of herbs and faint talc-like mineral things. Pretty and long, fine and fresh, it’s got detail but high drinkability in spades. Cool as.
Far south west Victoria, organic practices in the vineyard, a beautiful part of Victoria, great people who love their vineyard (close to Hochkirch wines). I really wanted to play with some Gris again, (last time was in 2007 for a contract job). 2 harvests, Barrel ferment, skin contact, stainless, etc I wanted to have a lot of fun making this (same grapes as Good Times Pet Nat). All seperate batches were racked & put together in November then Bottled with no additions in February.
