2021 La Violetta Fav Vermentino
- La Violetta
- Great Southern WA
Favorita is the Piedmonte name for the white grape Vermentino, hence AJ Hoadley's renaming of this awesome skin contact white, which pulls back nicely from being a full-bore amber release.
The fruit comes from the great viticulturalists at Swinney, and it's quality stuff, with green apple, citrus and a lick of ripe phenolics, measured by a salty finish that hints at nuttiness,.
It spent five days on its grape skins, then time in oak with some lees contact, then only touch of sulphur added. A seriously good drink whatever drinking persuasion you profess to.
