La Violetta Up! Shiraz 2012

From winemaker Andrew Hoadley, “Sourced from two vineyards (Waterman Old Block and Marion) in the Porongurup foothills – about 4 km apart, as the crow flies. One of these sites is defined as Mt Barker, the other Porongurup. Hard to respect any GI border drawn with a straight line, so I prefer to use the wider net of Great Southern”.

The wine sees 40% new oak, the rest used oak, and the ferment has about 10% whole bunches in it.
