2017 La Violetta Épicé great southern, australia
$31

As is the way of Andrew Hoadley and La Violetta, there’s a quixotic feel to this wine.
There’s a frivolous feel to the wine, scattered perfume of stone fruit with squirts of green pear, sweet jasmine, halva, green herbs and something red berry fruity too. Jangly and jolly in the palate, some slickness to texture, good length of flavour with the a kind of ‘modern-classical symphonic’ feel (let’s go with Iannis Xenakis, though I’ve just been listening to Alice Coltrane’s ‘Rite Of Spring’ too), all angles and yet smooth, wild edged in spice and fruit flavours yet an underlying calm of fresh acidity. The bottom line is its refreshing, a talking point, clever, fun. Like. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
