2021 Loosie Ranga
A joocie white blend from the Geographe and Great Southern regions of WA. Whiffs of sweet florals, dried citrus rind and wild spice drift up your nose, before your mouth is hit with a sloppy kiss of tangy peach and rhubarb, savoury tannins and skinsy textures. Complex, yet smashable.
La Violetta's 'Loosie' wines are a blend of 'loose' ends at the end of AJ Hoadley's vintage, tied up post blending into lip-smacking lucky dips. 'Ranga' is Riesling, Zibibbo, Gewurz, Vermentino, Pinot Grigio and Moscato, all handpicked from seven different parcels across 4 vintages. The different grapes saw between 4 to 40 days on skins, all hand plunged daily, wild fermented and bottled unfined, unfiltered and without adjustment.
