La Violetta - 2018 Nova Syrova

You’re on foot, in a land where you don’t speak the language, walking the country roads. The crisp song of summer cicadas follows you.

There’s a sign up ahead, shady trees line the path, a fountain surrounded by flowers, a small village … La Violetta, AJ Hoadley's passion project! The triumph of the glittery, gorgeous Great Southern. 

The inhabitants sit in silence, watching you with one eye, the other on their glass, and these are the wines they drink.

There are many cuvees in the collection, all delicious. The name is misleading, it's predominantly Grenache; juicy, fresh and begging for a bit of a chill. 

Variety Grenache || Region Great Southern, WA || ABV 13.8% || Vol 750ml
