La Violetta, Yé-Yé Blanc 2015
Apparently winemaker Andrew Hoadley named this wine after what you’d exclaim joyfully after one sip. Fronted by Riesling’s soft yet tart juiciness and bright acidity, there’s lovely mounthfeel, florality and minerality from the Viognier, Gewurztraminer and Vermentino. Part of the blend is fermented on its skins using wild yeast in old oak, which gives great roundness and texture too.
