2018 La Violetta Yé Yé Blanc: A beautiful wine that has been masterfully put together. Fresh and zippy riesling brings a wonderful fresh line of acidity and a lime tang. This is complimented with the aromatic qualities of Gewürztraminer that bring spice and florals. Ultimatley this is a bright and refreshing style of white wine that is hard to stop drinking once you start!

2020 La Violetta Yé Yé Grisé: One of the highlights in the La Violetta range. built on Gewürztraminer with some supporting Riesling. Great texture, intensity of flavour. With a wonderful rip of acidity keeping things all bright and perky.

2017 La Violetta Up! Shiraz: Up – a suffix found in many place names in Western Australia’s south-west, up means “place of” in the indigenous Noongar dialect. The fruit is predominantly from ironstone and granite soils and it makes for wonderful drinking. Medium to full bodied without being overdone there a lovely dark fruit with layers of smoked meat and spice. The palate is supple and juicy with a nice pinch of tannin holding everything in place.

Producer Profile

La Violetta

Andrew "AJ" Hoadley is Western Australia's iconoclast winemaker, although he'd probably say that's putting it a bit strongly...regardless, his fledgling winery (first release - 2008 La Ciornia, in 2010) has re-imagined traditional styles in Australia's largest state. That one of Andrew's wines is named Das Sakrileg ("The Sacrilege") should speak loudly enough.

The La Violetta wines offer power and precision, and drinkability in spades. Grapes are sourced from established vineyards from around the Great Southern region, and AJ plays a big part in overseeing the management of the vines, ensuring vine health and optimum ripeness.

All the wines are fermented spontaneously, and whilst none are filtered, some undergo a light fining. They are wines of presence and impact, but also of finesse and verve.
