Eastern Peake Pinot Tache 2016

From the charming hand written sticker on the bottle, “21 years of production, 100% pinot noir rose, made with purpose, no cut corners. The last time it [the wine] was this colour was in 1999. I was 15 and had to step in after dad’s accident in vintage. How time flys (sic). No tricks, just terroir”. It’s one of Australian wine’s great stories of young Owen Latta taking the reigns during mornings, lunch breaks and afternoons while at school, but the Eastern Peake story, with its weave through Trevor Mast’s life, is also wonderful. Here’s one of Australia’s (anywhere?) best rose wines. It sees 16 months lees contact, which is almost unprecedented in Australia.
