La Violetta 'Yé
Yé Grisé' White Blend
"A blend of 66% gewürztraminer and 34% riesling, withflavour, freshness and texture.Most of the gewürz comes from a high elevation slope ofgravelly loam, a few km south of Gnomesville in the FergusonValley. The other small parcel is from one of Great Southern’s oldest vineyards. Hand harvested, de-stemmed and given several hours skin contact, then pressed off to tank and old oak without sulphur to ferment wild.
The riesling comes from a gravelly ironstone hillside west of Mount Barker, one of my favourite Great Southern vineyards in another great vintage for the variety. This vintage, a bucket of skin contact pinot gris adds the 'griserie', a subliminal copper hue, accentuating the colour picked up from gewürz skins"
