About

About The Wine

This wine is a staple in the La Violetta range, and it remains one of our favourites.

The fruit is sourced from three different sites, in what the La Violetta refer to as the "spice belt" of Mount Barker. Hoadley lovingly crafts all his wines using fruit from vineyards that he feels has some sort of exceptional character - one indescribable in words, but he knows it when he sees (tastes) it.

This is a not-so-classic cool climate Shiraz here, all about perfume and spice and structure.  It's as thought-provoking as it is delicious!

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 are some of the most thought-provoking wines in the West.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Sourced from three great shiraz sites in the “spice belt” south of Mt Barker, this release shows exceptional aromatic intensity, elegance and balance.

Hand harvested, then destemmed without crushing. Fermentation was carried out in small open top fermenters, mostly with hand plunging of the cap, but also délestage by gravity. After pressing off skins, the wine matured for 12 months in new and seasoned French hogsheads (second and third use). No fining or stabilisation.

About the name: Up is a suffix commonly found in place names in Western Australia’s south-west, meaning “place of” in the indigenous Noongar dialect. This wine evokes the ancient granitic soils of its place of origin in the hills around Mount Barker.

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
