The vintage we’d been waiting for, it was a huge season with too much happening all at once.. so many good things. The breakdown of this is all Coghills Creek Pinot Noir the vineyards are all walking distance to one another: my uncles vineyard Mount Coghill farmed by us 60%, Walsh Block farmed by our neighbours Frank & Kerry Walsh 40% & for good measure Eastern Peake 10%. All parcels are kept seperate, different methods of zero bunch to 25% whole bunch, 12 months in barriques, racked settled for 6 months then bottled.
The Wine Front
Latta Vino Coghills Creek Pinot Noir Young Skin No. 3 2017
Posted on 31 May 2019.
Always complex in the naming of the Latta Vino wines, but hey, go with the flow. So much interest in the wines of this fine, young producer, a real boundary pusher but with an eye on elevated quality in the same, avant garde breath.
Has that sense of nourishment, savouriness, turned earth on pleasing sour cherries, touch of pomegranate, suggestion of game meat. Lightly chewy tannins do a good deal, so does the length and the amaro-kissed acidity is a charm. This has a beautiful mellowness and understatement but delivers so much going on. Yes thanks.
