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 adventurers, the risk takers and the explorers of all things wine.

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. Well worth a try, trust us.

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

Partly inspired by winemakers of the Mosel Valley and Alsace, but mostly just to provoke, Das Sakrileg Riesling is produced in small volumes for those with inquisitive palates and a healthy appreciation of diversity. In contrast to the classic, purist Australian Riesling style, juice is oxidatively handled, fermented wild in barrel, matured on unsulphured lees and may undergo partial malolactic fermentation.

Sourced from Denmark and Mount Barker sites on sandy loam over clay and granite.

Blend : Riesling (100%)
ABV : 12.1%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2031
Bottle Size : 750ml

    beautiful riesling

    This is pure with contained energy and a long, delicate shape. It has apple, lemon, mineral etc. but nothing dominates. Refreshing. I was wondering how funky it would be, but - though it shows off it's texture as it warms up - it falls on the cleaner side of the funk divide for me. I loved it.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
