Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
"One of the most exciting Australian producer's ranges to cross my desk in the last 12 months."


Max Allen, Gourmet Traveller Aus
"Andrew Hoadley of La Violetta, for example, one of the most influential of the new-wave producers, makes exceptional wines such as a riesling, a shiraz and a cabernet-malbec blend that are quirky enough to satisfy the hipster somms but classic enough to please anyone."


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Most of the gewürz comes from a high elevation slope of gravelly loam, a few km south of Gnomesville in the Ferguson Valley. The other small parcel is from one of Great Southern’s oldest vineyards. Hand harvested, destemmed and given several hours skin contact, then pressed off to tank and old oak without sulphur to start fermenting. The riesling comes from a gravelly ironstone hillside west of Mount Barker, one of my favourite Great Southern vineyards in an excellent vintage for the variety. This year, a bucket of 100% whole bunch pinots meunier and noir adds the griserie, a subliminal copper hue, accentuating the colour picked up from gewürz skin contact.

Rosewater, citrus blossom and as a friend said, “something I can’t put my finger on, white musk or something sexy…” Okay, let’s run with that. Delicious moreish acidity, with textural phenolics, balanced with lees contact and barrel ferment roundness, the barest touch of residual sugar (2 g/L)."
