2020 LATTA Jurassique Blanc
Lack of rain, poor flowering & general harsh conditions of the past few years have contributed to the lack of Chardonnay grown at Eastern Peake. This wine is off two vineyards - ours at Coghills Creek & the one at Tarrington. It was previously mentioned no 2020 would be produced, under very fortunate circumstances a wine has been produced.
I’m so pleased that this could be produced again, its not fully oxidative such as other releases its the "Ouille" method. the thought of risking this wine in 2020 was a bit much, the wine does have undertones of the style though. whole bunch pressed, barrel fermented, full malo, no additions just minimal sulphur at racking & again at bottling.
Where: Coghills Creek, VIC
How: This wine is Steave's favourite. Have a roast chook and all the trimmings.
