The Wine Front
I haven’t seen a dud wine from Latta; incredible personality and drinkability, choice sites conspiring with clever winemaking. Zero sulphur added here without dogma, just because it works without, and my oh my is it fresh and tense. “Grown by some old mates” says the notes accompanying, stuck as always on a large sticker on the bottle, so too “drink in short shorts” which I was doing anyway. While it’s got some heartiness and heft, rasp to tannin, ferrous notes, it feels surprisingly lively on the tongue, a little jig of blood orang acidity and light herbal detail does that trick. It’s huge in scent with ripe plum, salty liquorice, dried herbs and rose petal-led pot pourri – flavours echo. Drinks a charm, firm in the palate, per se, juicy in the core, that furr to tannin and a building bitter-pumice-like pucker as it closes. Fantastic.

Young Winemaker of the Year - Gourmet Wine Traveller 2018

Owen Latta is one of the most talented and innovative young winemakers on the Australian wine landscape. After completing his first vintage at 15 years old at Eastern Peake, he now also makes a superb range of minimal intervention sulphur free wines under his own label Latta that are quite frankly some of the best of their kind we we have ever tasted. We have always enjoyed his wines in this store, but this Latta is something special… Enjoy!

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
