La Violetta Up! Shiraz 2014

upThe Up! in this wine refers to the common suffix of -up in many of the place names in Western Australia. I didn’t pay attention to that until now. The -up means ‘place of’ and not ‘near water’ which is a common misconception. I thought it meant ‘near water’ for years until someone corrected me a while back. Anyways, from two vineyards, spends time in new and old French oak barrels.
