Product Details

Black cherry and strawberry flavours with earthy undertones, a fleshy mid-plate and the varieties trademark savoury tannins.

'If I had to bet the house on one of the so-called alternative grape varieties it'd be Spain's tempranillo. We crush only about 3000 tonnes a year in Australia (equivalent to perhaps 225,000 dozen bottles) – a mere splash compared with the more familiar varieties we grow. However, despite the small volume, a recent Australian Bureau of Statistics survey unearthed 341 tempranillo producers across the country.
A standout among those is Peter Leske and David LeMire's La Linea. Though consistently fragrant and floral in earlier vintages, the 2012 lifts another notch, especially in its juicy, fleshy, spicy medium-bodied palate – complete with the variety's wave of tannins drying out the finish.' - 4 ½ Stars.
