Latta Vino - Quality Grenache 2020
2020 was a shocker all around, but in the context of viticulture it is one of the smallest seasons to date in Victoria and beyond. Latta's always taken sangiovese & cabernet sauvignon from the Shays Flat site when permitted. So when the grenache became available it was a massive lifeline for production and exciting to make grenache from such a well-farmed vineyard.
Farmed by Cory Hope, all certified organic. About 20% whole bunch, zero adds as always, basket pressed after a week & a bit, élevage for 12 months in 228L & 500L casks. It's a pretty serious wine, loads of detail. Not called Quality Release for nothin'.
