Almirante y Obispo - La Violetta


Brace Yourself 

La Violetta’s Admiral and the Bishop is a raucous combination of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Mataró varieties and the result is a spicy, Spanish fiesta.  The young West Australian winemaker behind this blend include stalks and whole bunches in co-fermentation, and cold macerates for an even gutsier colour.  La Violetta keep their production at a very small scale so that they can hand craft each batch – and this is why each bottle is so highly coveted.  Andrew Hoadley is one of Master Sommelier Sebastian Crowther's winemakers to watch, and he recommends a decanter and big glasses to enjoy this complex, savoury wine.
