Latta Benevolent Cabernet Franc 2021
Owen Latta is the guy who took over winemaking for his parents at the ripe age of 15 for Eastern Peake, making some of the finest wines to come out of Victoria. Now with his own label, Latta Vino, he dabbles in all kinds of vinous experiments.
The first attempt at the varietal is a swing and a home run in our opinion. Definitely ambling down that very Loire vibe, the fruit is perfectly in tune with the herbaceous/vegetal things that normally go on. Drink chilled and be transported.
Grape: Cabernet Franc
