Vino Volta Tempranillo Grenache Touriga La Chingadera 12pk 2019
Small batch, lo-fi winemaking, highlighting the star varietals of the region; Chenin Blanc and Grenache.
A relatively new producer on the scene, Vino Volta aim to make approachable medium-bodied wines with a low impact approach in both the vineyard, and the winery. This is the wine-child of Garth Cliff, and Kirsten McGann, partners in life and business. Garth has been making wine for the past 20 years, the last 10 with Houghton in the Swan Valley, which allowed him to gain great insight and appreciation for the region. Kirsten, also a wine industry lifer, handles the hard stuff, while garth focuses on the winemaking. Modern, bright and highly drinkable, Vino Volta is a producer we are very excited to grow with.
“Garth Cliff, a quiet revolutionary in the Swan Valley. Or something like that. I like this energy around the region and a willingness to innovate. Kudos... If we can help inspire the Swan to do more of this I would be pretty happy – that’s the main idea with this range of wines."

Top 25 West Australian Wine Awards 2020
Superb wine of brightness and freshness, vitality and purity, drives on strong minerally charm and cinches on tight and streaky tannins. The wine is so long and beautiful to sip on.
Immense floral and spice perfume emerges, and the palate and bouquet double down on notes of just ripe red berry fruits and cola characters. Incredibly fine wine.
