Latta Headwaters Nebbiolo 2018
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.
This wine is made up of some high quality gear from Landsborough Valley. Owen and nebbiolo are a match made in heaven and here with extended maceration, a bit more time in barrel and tank, and minimal sulfur, he makes a world-class nebb without trying to play a cover of Barolo. It is full bodied, but classsic tar and roses and tasty licks of menthol keep it's head above water. Bravo mate.
