2021 LattaVINO Landsborough Rouge (Deluxe)
Our favourite time of the year - Owen Latta's new wines are in the shop.
Notes from him - Certified Organic Syrah from Block Five, off the Chapoutier Vineyard (this fruit has never been sold before, these guys definitely know a thing or two about growing fine Syrah). I was pretty lucky to get the phone call - this is such an insane vineyard site it was hard to say no. Also it is great to make some Syrah again - last time was 2015. 75% whole bunch fermented in one open 3000L concrete vat, pump overs twice daily, basket pressed, elevagé in new and seasoned French casks, racked after months then bottled. Raw!
