2019 LattaVINO Yandoit Cabernet Sauvignon
Notes from the maestro Owen Latta:
I really enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon from another era, many styles of the new world really misrepresent the variety. Cabernet was king up until the mid / late nineties when high alcohol & excessive oak took control, a balance was lost, decades of fine wine trust gone. Back in 2014 I made a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Shays Flat Vineyard in the Pyrenees of Victoria. In 2019 I was excited to have another crack at it again from Yandoit just down the road from the winery. Vinified in rectangular small open wax lined concrete fermenters, 25% wholebunch, indigenous yeasts, hand plunged, 7 week extended post ferment maceration, unforced naturally occurring malolactic fermentation, unfined, unfiltered & un-tinkered. Minimal Sulfites Added.
