La Violetta Up! Shiraz 2011

If you’re fixing for a cult wine producer from Great Southern that doesn’t get much light of day out of WA, then here you go. The whole range is shiny and exciting, touched with a feather duster of experimentation and looking to showcase good regional vibes in the wines. There’s a riesling (das Sakrileg) out there too, which has created big noise in the fancy hair set, though the reds command decent attention in their own right. Tied in with Castelli Estate, by winemaker, mostly. Onwards.
