Description

La Violetta Bilingue is spicy with red cherry, raspberry, strawberry, creamy, olives, leather. It is mouth-filling. An explosion of flavour, with gritty tannins, a hint of acid. It holds a floral and sweet core to the end. A very good wine. Drink it now because it is delicious now.

La Violetta

La Violetta is from an old Piedmontese song celebrating intoxication. Andrew “AJ” Hoadley’s personality shows through in his wines. Fun, approachable, drinkable, with complexity and concentration. Grapes come from established vineyards in WA’s Great Southern region. AJ makes his wines in a small facility in the countryside.

Grenache/Garnacha

Spain’s gift to the world. We know it as Grenache and I think everyone has a soft spot for it in some way. Almost too exuberant in expressing its sweet red fruits and high alcohol. It often needs a little bit of other wines to add moderation, structure and depth. Much like Abbott and Costello. Despite this, the wines of Priorat, Chateauneuf du Pape, Rioja and Aussie GSMs have an amazing ability to age for the long term.

Mourvedre (Monastrell, Mataro)

Also known as Mourvedre in France and Mataro in the new world. It makes a muscular, tannic, meaty, savoury wine. It is often the backbone of a blend but in places like Alicante, Jumilla and Yecla it is the major if not only variety in the red wine. Aging can vary depending on winemaker influence.

Shiraz/Syrah

A bit of a chameleon, Shiraz can change how it looks depending on terroir and/or winemaker influence. The Syrah-based wines of Northern Rhone are dry and austere while the Shiraz of Barossa is rich and fleshy. A variety that lends itself to long aging but can be drunk at any time of its evolution.
