Always one of the faves of the Latta canon. Sauvignon made savoury. Sauvignon made sensual. Sauvignon Blanc made from a quartz riddled vineyard in Moonambel, Pyrenees.Oxidatively handled and with a long and slow ferment followed by lees contact and full malo-lactic fermentation.

They always afford such poise, such energy, such purpose. Being able to show your winemaking skill and also the best of the fruit is a hard skill to balance, but he does it in spades. He is one of Australia’s finest young winemakers.
