Winery: Latta Vino
Region: Ballarat - Victoria
Winemaker: Owen Latta
Varietal(s): 100% Riesling
Another string added to Owen Latta's bow with this excellent 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 second crop. The potential is tantalising.
Ripped with crystalline acidity and mineral elements, this is a unique look at Australian Riesling.
"Scents of lemon juice and warm cashew with a whiff of fino sherry. Tart and brittle in the palate though it finishes juicy, mouth-watering and with salted nut savouriness. Oh yum. Lemony to taste too, but yeah, savoury. So very piercing, racy and lean. Superb stuff." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
