About The Wine

Another deliciously playful chapter in the La Violetta novel here.

This is a Riesling-based blend from Great Southern.  It's all florals and juicy, jubey tropical fruits, with a nice slippery texture and savoury nuances adding interest and holding the blend together.

It's easy-drinking but with a degree of interest, and excellent value.

About La Violetta

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.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"The blend is compiled from 88% riesling, 8% gewürztraminer and 4% viognier, but that’s by-the-by, it’s really just a ripper drinking white of Western Australia. I think it was in Robert Drewe’s non-fiction book The Shark Net where he describes heat, bare feet and sand of WA, and somewhere in my muddled mind of think of this and drinking cold white wine of personality and ease of drinking. This sits in that zone. Wine of place by another way.  More than meets the eye. Layers of scent in frangipani, lemon blossom, faint stone fruit nectar, rose petal. Good suggestions of the varieties but that’s if you’re looking. Cool and crisp to taste with a lilt of slipperiness for interest. Sherbet like freshness to finish, with plenty of sheets of flavour in the citrus-stone fruit sector before. Guzzle away. It’s calling you." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
