Liberty Wines has added La Linea to its Australia portfolio for UK on-trade sale.

Product details

A joint venture between David LeMire MW and Peter Leske, La Linea had its first vintage in 2007. Made from Tempranillo grapes, it is produced in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia.

USP

La Linea Adelaide Hills Tempranillo Rosé 2014 (stelvin closure, 12.5 per cent abv) is a dry and tangy rosé sourced from the Llangibby vineyard, a cooler site on shallow grey-brown loam over clay located at 350 metres on the central hills between Echunga and Mount Barker.

La Linea Adelaide Hills Tempranillo 2013 (stelvin closure, 13.5 per cent abv) comes from Amadio Kersbrook, an east-facing vineyard on grey-brown loam between the villages of Kersbrook and Williamstown to the north of the region. The warmer and drier produces earlier-ripening fruit with more tannin and lower acidity, suited to serious red wines.

Availability

La Linea Adelaide Hills Tempranillo Rosé 2014 (£15.99) and La Linea Adelaide Hills Tempranillo 2013 (£18.99) are available now in the UK through Liberty Wines.

Why you should buy it

David Gleave MW, managing director at Liberty Wines, said: “The addition of La Linea to our portfolio underlines our ongoing aim to represent what we consider to be the top producers in any wine region, those who are committed to producing wines with a ‘sense of place’, whether they be large wineries or small producers.

"La Linea’s production is very much small scale, but the wines illustrate perfectly the potential for Tempranillo in the Adelaide Hills and strengthen our premium Australian portfolio.”
