La Linea tempranillo


La Linea tempranillo

2016.   ABV. 13.5%

Fragrant, medium bodied and savoury with a fleshy mid palate

The 2016 La Linea has the intense raspberry and redcurrant characters that are typical of cool climate Temp, complemented by savoury herbs: sage, rosemary
and sorrel. It’s generous in the mouth yet dry and fine, with the gritty, suede-like tannins that we just love, as they make it such a beautiful match with a cornucopia of foods. It’s a medium-term ageing proposition… best within 5-8 years from bottling (which was, for the record: January 2017)

La Linea tempranillo


Spain’s great red grape! It parallels Shiraz in Australia, in that it is grown across the country in diverse climates, and made into many styles. 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…”.
