Overview

It’s an “off-dry” style (or “slightly sweet”; you choose the term that works best for you!), but as always our emphasis is on the lovely core of cool-climate acidity as much as the delicate sweetness (which is 25 g/L: hence ’25 Grams Residual’).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2010 shows an interesting variation in classical Riesling fruit expression. It is gently floral (think musk and yellow roses; yes: different

colour roses have very different aromas), with citrus fruit reminiscent of mandarin, rather than the typical lime. We also see some hints of

nectarine. It is quite ‘grapey’ in aroma – we’d love to express that better, but the term just seems to work!

Palate

It has instant mouth-filling sweetness which carries through until the acidity takes over, at which stage it appears drier than might be expected given its 25 grams/litre of natural grape sugar. It finishes fresh and almost dry due to that zesty, mouth-watering acidity, which balances the sweetness perfectly.

While the 2010 is slightly less overt in its youth than its predecessors, we are delighted that over three vintages we have made subtly different but fundamentally consistent wines, of similar structure, weight and feel. And we are also very pleased that they are not only interesting due to the complex play between sugar, acid and alcohol which distinguishes these styles, but are also simply delicious drinks.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

La Linea is a partnership of experienced wine industry professionals, including Peter Leske and David LeMire MW. Peter was among the first to recognise the potential of Tempranillo in Australia, and his knowledge of it is reflected in the three wine styles made from the variety: Tempranillo Rose, the Tempranillo blended from several Adelaide Hills vineyards, and Norteno, from a single vineyard at the northern end of the Hills. Two Rieslings are produced under the Vertigo label: TRKN (short for trocken), and the off-dry 25GR (25 g/l residual sugar). James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
