- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
We love the way Andrew Hoadley thinks about wine.
The guy’s creativity is so refreshing, he is almost pathologically incapable of making a ‘conventional’ wine, and for that, we salute him.
His newest creation is the 2015 Nova Syrova. A blend of Syrah, Grenache, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir and Monastrell, this wine begs to be drunk as soon as it arrives.
It’s all about freshness and flavour. Interest and immediate impact.
Mike Bennie may have said it best with this: “Far out, hard to spit out on the tasting bench.”
We loved it and can’t wait for you to try it!
What It Tastes Like
Bright, poppy, herbal and pippy. A little bit of carbonic maceration, bit of whole bunch - both moves a stroke of genius. It’s light - medium weight, easily smashable, and super refreshing!
93 points. “So it’s a blend of ciras (syrah), cannonau (grenache), picotendro (nebbiolo, remember this from Aosta Valley), rulandske modre (pinot noir, knew that one from a recent trip to Slovakia) and monastrell. Phew. To spend a while in that mind of Andrew Hoadley, winemaker and nurturer of drinks at La Violetta. Built for rapid consumption, it feels.
It’s a wicked drink. Spice, slippery texture, just medium bodied, just ripe red fruits and buckshots of amaro herbal sour-sweetness. It almost feels like a negroni, but grapey. It’s peppery and briary in scent, juicy in those little red berries and cherries, crisp in acidity and slides around the palate with joyous ease. In that, it feels simple, but hang around and admire the layering of fine scent, perks of each grape variety in texture, fruitiness and herbal-savouriness. Far out, hard to spit out on the tasting bench.”

About the Producer
Few winemakers bring as much creativity and flair to their label as the mercurial Andrew Hoadley. With a mischievous, child-like joy, he has set about crafting La Violetta, one of the most fascinating wine ranges in Western Australia, and indeed, the country.
His wines are inspiring, each a creation all of its own. With a mix of single vineyard, single varietal wines and some exotic blends, these some of the most thought-provoking wines in the West.
The Great Southern is the largest wine region in the country. Though more and more, the label “Great Southern” is becoming redundant. It is the sub-regional exploration of terroir which is distinguishing this region. From Frankland River to Porongorup, from Mount Barker to Denmark, the detailed and stylish wines emerging from these sub-regions are some of the most intriguing in the country. No longer a “poor man’s Margaret River”, whether you love Riesling, Cabernet, Shiraz or Pinot, this stunning cool climate region will blow you away with the value and refinement inherent in everything it produces. And the good thing is, it is only getting better.
