Latta Rattlesnake Blanc 2017

Named for a snake we don’t have in Australia, but hey, we know this. A blend of viognier, gris, sauvignon blanc and pinot noir juice on gewurztraminer skins. The make up is actually more complicated than that, but that’s the varieties. Lots of skin contact ferments in that mix too. Vineyard sources are ‘Western Zone’ Victoria. Creativity is writ large for Owen Latta. I am listening to Jean-Michel Jarre Oxygene through entirely, and part 17 came on as this hit the glass for a revisit. So fitting – futuristic and uplifting with a nod to the past.
