La Violetta 'Ye-Ye' Blanc 2020 (Riesling/Gewurztraminer/Viognier) Great Southern, Western Australia
The riesling at the heart of this blend comes from a vineyard 15 km south-west of Mt Barker. It shows loads of pure floral intensity, a conversation starter with the other varieties that contribute aromatic complexity and textural elements: old vine, dry-grown Gewürz and a splash of skin-contact Vermentino from Frankland River. About 20% is fermented in old oak barrels on solids to round out the Riesling linearity with some lees-derived richness, giving context to the structural phenolics. 2018 was a brilliant year for Riesling and other aromatic whites in Great Southern, with the mild season bringing exceptional fruit intensity, purity and drive to the wines.
