La Linea Tempranillo Rosé 2017

La Linea rose
There has been a significant ‘buzz’ over the past few years about single vineyard wines. As wine people with a great deal of experience in Europe (especially Burgundy), we understand the buzz… special sites produce special wines. Like its five predecessors, our 2012 rosé has been specifically sourced from the same cool single-vineyard block, located between Echunga and Mount Barker in the central Adelaide Hills.

This block was always intended to be the source for this wine. It offers, year after year, unusually intense varietal fruit fragrance, which makes it perfect for rosé. We could not make this wine from any other blocks we know of. While it’s tempting to ‘have a play’, neither have we dramatically altered our approach in the vineyard or winery since we started in 2007. Importantly, the fruit is picked when perfectly ripe for rosé, which is 1-2 weeks earlier than if we are making dry red. Once in the winery it is crushed and chilled into the press, where it sits for 12- 20 hours while the skins gently release colour and tannin into the juice.

The skin-contact timewas consistent with earlier years, and the resultant wine also very similar to those previous vintages. As always, it is bone dry with a faint and subtle tannin edge from that time on skins. Fresh acidity follows those typical flavours of red apples, Turkish delight and red berries. Again, don’t cellar it! Enjoy its fragrance and crispness in its youth.
