Latta Jurassique Chardonnay 2017
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 is Owen's ode to Jura. A barrel left un-topped for a year to develop that Sherry-like oxidative character and umami kick. This is delivered freshly though, like a modern cover of a classic. This is Owen Latta for Like a Version. Delish.
