"More than meets the eye", Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
"Layers of scent in frangipani, lemon blossom, faint stone fruit nectar, rose petal. Good suggestions of the varieties but that’s if you’re looking. Cool and crisp to taste with a lilt of slipperiness for interest. Sherbet like freshness to finish, with plenty of sheets of
flavour in the citrus-stone fruit sector. Guzzle away. It’s calling you."
Another La Violetta hallmark in this blend of Riesling, Gerwurztraminer and Viognier, combining the pure floral Riesling intensity with aromatic complexity and textural elements from other grapes.
Freshness, balance and aromatic intensity typical of the vintage, with scents of lavender, wet stone and crystalline citrus. The acidity is matched by the depth of fruit, providing a canvas for the complexing textures of mineral phenolics, lees contact and barrel fermentation to disappear within. Fully drinkable this, glass after glass.
2017 vintage was a brilliant year for aromatic whites, with the mild season bringing exceptional fruit intensity, purity and drive to the wines!
