La Linea Tempranillo Adelaide Hills 2020


One of, if not the, best Tempranillo I’ve had from Australia.

Good depth of flavour, hint jammy, smoke, meaty, olives, darker than most Aussie Tempranillo. The palate has a great mouthfeel, smoke, herbal notes. It is clean and the more I taste it the more I love it. I think this is probably my favourite Australian Temp but competition is getting a lot stiffer. Drink over the next 10 years. Serve with grilled lamb.

Started in 2007 La Linea is a partnership between to wine (un)professionals with a passion for Tempranillo. Working now with six vineyards from North and South Adelaide Hills. The passion shows in the quality of the final wines.

Adelaide Hills

This is a big and varied region. Basically it stretches from the top of the McLaren Vale all the way to the bottom of the Barossa. This means there is a big scope for climatic conditions. In the central part where its altitude is quite high you can get some of the best sites in the world for Sparkling wine. In the slightly warmer parts of the centre, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir reign supreme with Riesling, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc worthy of honourable mentions.


Top quality grape grown all over the Peninsula (with many pseudonyms). It can be used for Rosado or Joven (released after 6 months) all the way up to Gran Reserva (60 months in the winery). It ages very well and top examples are said to compare to Burgundy. Cherry and cola are typical descriptors, it has moderate to low acid, moderate tannin and the naturally high pH allows for a silky mouthfeel that is not seen in other red wines.
