Skigh Wines 'Coda' Grenache 2020 - Skigh McManus has been a winemaker in Margaret River for more than fifteen years. With his eponymous label, Skigh is striking out on his own. There's some serious value to be had in his range and some curios for the more adventurous drinker. He sources quality fruit from some of the premier sub-regions of Margaret River and gets his wines to bottle with minimal intervention. This 2020 Grenache is fun, vibrant, and full of bright fresh fruit with a soft tannin, the perfect lunch wine!
This wine is a staple in the La Violetta range, and it remains one of our favourites.
As AJ explains, "Up is a suffix commonly found in place names in Western Australia’s south-west, meaning 'place of' in the indigenous Noongar dialect. This wine evokes the ancient granitic soils of its place of origin in the hills around Mount Barker."
This is a not-so-classic cool climate Shiraz here, all about perfume and spice and structure. It's as thought-provoking as it is delicious! Few winemakers bring as much creativity and flair to their label as the mercurial Andrew Hoadley. With a mischievous, child-like joy, he has set about crafting La Violetta, one of the most fascinating wine ranges in Western Australia, and indeed, the country. His wines are inspiring, each a creation all of its own. With a mix of single vineyard, single varietal wines and some exotic blends, these some of the most thought-provoking wines in the West.

Aromatic cherry and dried herb on the nose meld with subtle oak and notes of chocolate and spice on the palate. A vibrant wine with velvety tannins that finishes savoury and dry, making this wine instantly appealing. The perfect Spring Pinot!

The Bizarre Love Triangle is an idea, a blend based on the Gentil aromatic blends of Alsace in France, where it is allowed to blend only Riesling, Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. These are aromatic spicy delicious wines with slippery and slatey textures, great chilled for warm weather and approachable as young wines. The 2020 BLT is a more textural Pinot Gris driven style with slate, mineral, ginger and underlying rose petal notes. The palate is even and long with pithy textural elements all bound in the end by soft acidity. A wine of subtlety and style with great length, don’t serve too cold….Great with cheese, dumplings or whitebait
