La Violetta Up Great Southern 2014 started it’s wine production in small quantities in 2008, selecting grapes from trusted small growers, among which some of the oldest vines in the state. The idea was to maintain small-scale production, so that hand harvesting could be maintained. La Violetta is taken from an old song in Piedmont, Italy and it celebrates intoxication. La Violetta Up Great Southern 2014 is an intense, complex and savoury red shiraz, with flavours of red fruits, some herbal notes and a little bit of nice tingling acidity.
Cossetti Barolo DOCG 2013 is produced by the three cossetti sisters, In 1891 Clementina Cossetti began a business that would soon prove prosperous, changing the family farm into a winery. As a land of excellent wines, full of history and well recognised by end of the nineteenth century, Monferrato was an excellent wine-growing area from which the family, with its deep-rooted ties to the area, established its philosophy of quality. This Barolo is a long ageing refined Nebbiolo with a garnet red colour and orangish highlights that intensify over time. Intense aromas of red and violet fruit and black olives with fully ample and velvety flavour and a spicy, light vanilla finish.
Ministry of Clouds Chardonnay 2016 is created by Julian Forewood and Bernice Ong in the heart of Tasmania. They seek out the very best grapes from different regions of Australia in order to make refined wines that are pure and expressive. The name symbolises the relinquishing of their past security and structure (Ministry), for the freedom, independence and adventure (Clouds) inherent in their own venture. The Ministry of Clouds Chardonnay is a pale golden colour, with a shy and somewhat restrained nose exuding white flowers, peach, nectarine characters, and subtle hints of nougat and wood spice. On the palate, there is a fine, flinty bedrock of chalky minerality supports a core of intense stone fruit, framing its lingering acidity.
