About

About The Wine

This Riesling is not for the faint of heart or lovers of the 'classical' style of Aussie Rizza.

It's one for the adventurous, the risk takers and the explorers of all things wine. Of the 2012, Max Allen said the Das Sakrileg, "Breaks all the “rules” of modern Australian riesling making, but the result is fantastically complex... A brilliant wine." and guru AJ Hoadley has only refined the style since then.

It is a pumped up, textural style with a lot to say. Oxidatively handled, fermented in oak, even a little malo which is almost unheard of in Australian Riesling.

For those with a love for boundary-pushing wines, this is up there with the best.

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

DDS review

Slightly grippy in feel, it oozes sappy citrus and dried green apples. The richness, the persistence of flavour, all the good things in the mouth. Lingers on the tongue. Lemoncello kind of finish. Dangerously smashable, in my books. - Different Drop Wine Team
