The Wine: The balance of the blend tips to Denmark Pinot in 2019: bright red fruits, syrah spice and dried herbs in the mix, aromatically. On the tongue, juicy, light, layered and fresh; savoury whole bunch tannins and a barrel of skin contact Vermentino bring dimensions of textural jollity.

Producer Profile

Andrew Hoadley is one of the most creative, passionate, interesting and humorous men working in the Western Australia wine scene. ‘Hoads’ as he’s known to his friends started producing wines under the La Violetta label in 2008 while he was still working for another, larger, winery in the Great Southern. He settled in the region after globe-trotting, gaining experience and quenching his thirst elsewhere.
