Our ‘TRKN’ (its name derived from the German word for dry: tröcken), is carefully crafted in the style for which South Australia is justifiably famous. It has been sourced from the same vineyard as its predecessors in 2009 and 2010, which is also the source of fruit for the ‘25GR’. (Have a look at our website for images of what a steep, bony piece of soil the vines cling to.)

The wine has the customary bracing acidity which we look for from this site; it is certainly a wine of great finesse.

Winery Tasting Notes


Its aromatics are fresh green apples, ginger and fresh lime juice (which is not the same as the much-loved “Bickford’s brown lime” of many SA Rieslings, which hark from warmer climes); plus, as 2011 was such a cool season, hints of fresh tarragon and basil.


On the palate you will see a mouth-watering lightness of structure, with a contribution to the mouthfeel from the inclusion of a small quantity of grape solids during fermentation. It’s long, lean and sinewy, with a twist of acidity (think citrus pith) that ensures a dry, blanched almond-like, finish.

Cellaring Potential

It will definetely reward cellaring; a decade should not challenge it one iota.

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
