About The Wine
In search of a new vineyard growing Gewurztraminer, AJ Hoadley found the perfect spot: a high altitude, cool, east-facing slope in Great Southern.
He got a little more than he bargained for, ending up with a few extra tonnes of Gewurz. No problem, he sourced some Pinot Gris (which he swapped for a case of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale), set the Gewurz to ferment on skins.
A 100% whole bunch component of the Pinot Meunier and Noir gives this a slight blushed colour. The wine is floral, textured, lively and beautifully perfumed. The perfect thing with a plate of fish and chips of a spicy asian curry.
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.
