La Violetta Happy Nat 2021

La Violetta

Regular price $39.99

Tax included.
Here’s Riesling from two prized Great Southern vineyards,
harvested to capture zesty natural acidity, then given 8 hours
skin contact before pressing to tank with no additions, to allow
natural fining through juice oxidation. After settling, this juice
is blended with muscat à petits grains rouges already
fermenting in barrel and so the frothy baton is passed from
cuvée to cuvée. At just the right moment, it all goes to bottle
and is capped to seal in the cloudy delights.

This 2021 release is undisgorged, unfined and unfiltered;
light sediment and natural tartrate crystals may remain in the
bottle. 11.8% Alc. 200 dozen made.
Tasting

Fresh riesling aromas - ginger, citrus, passionfruit - with
delicate muscat perfume just daring you to resist; go on then,
take a sip. Fine froth from a slow, wild fermentation carries
mouth-filling textures, and the barest trace of residual
sweetness balances the natural grape skin phenolics.
Goes down a treat. Happy days.
