Overview

Tempranillo is Spain’s great red grape. Grown all across the country in diverse climates and made into many styles, it parallels Shiraz in Australia. Famous UK writer and critic Jancis Robinson describes it as “… capable of making deep coloured, long-lasting wines that are not… notably high in alcohol”, with characters including “strawberries… spice, leather and tobacco leaves...”. We could not have said it better!

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wine is very varietal, with a regional signature that has been a consistent feature of La Linea, best described simply as ‘fragrant’. Its perfume is very attractive: an amalgam of red berries with floral hints, plus notes of spice and pomegranate essence - what the French call grenadine.

Palate

Importantly, it has the signature fleshy, medium-weight middle palate, followed by savoury late tannins, which make Tempranillo such a great wine to match with food. Moderate alcohol, fragrance, depth of flavour, and a gentle but beautifully dry finish.

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
