About The Wine

Feeling blue? Then you need some Happy Nat in your life!

La Violetta has become a leading producer of Australian Pet Nat. Every time you turn around it seems like AJ Hoadley has added two or three more to the range.

This magical blend sees Riesling meet Vermentino, with a little Red Traminer. It's designed to put a smile on your dial. All fizzy and fruity and flighty in the glass, it's a clean, creatively conceived Pet Nat that's primed for Summer.

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.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Felicitous confluence of riesling 36%, vermentino 34%, red traminer 19% and muscat 11%. The riesling and vermentino is sourced from a gravelly ironstone site in Frankland River, while the traminer and muscat come from a higher altitude vineyard in the Ferguson Valley.

Several days of skin contact on the vermentino and muscat, everything pressed to ferment slow and wild in old puncheons and barriques, with plenty of juice solids. Unfined, unfiltered, sent to bottle to finish ferment, as is traditional.

12.5% Alc. 1803 bottles made.

Blend : Riesling (36%), Vermentino (34%), Red Traminer (19%), Muscat (11%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Crown
Drink Until : 2022

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"It’s aromatically loaded; layered with citrus, herbal and floral notes, while the palate carries luscious, skinsy textures held in check by mineral phenolics. Low on fizz, it makes a refreshing, spritzy wine for the table - the feel is savoury and moreish. Bottles empty themselves without effort. Chill, and be happy." - La Violetta

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).
