It’s delicious. Nebbiolo delivered with an Australian accent.
About The Wine
This is a fairly classically made Nebbiolo from the Adelaide Hills.
Andy Coppard seems to have gotten his head around the variety pretty quickly. This is a fabulous wine.
Importantly, this has great drinkability and yet maintains the distinct DNA of variety. It's medium bodied, littered with moreish, chewy tannin and brimming with bright fruit.
Noted Nebbiolo enthusiast Gary Walsh rated this 93 points - a very high score from him for an Australian Nebbiolo.
And rightfully so, it's just a great thing to drink!
About Lino Ramble
Lino Ramble is the exciting creation of eccentric duo Andy Coppard (Winemaker) and Angela Townsend (self-proclaimed "Engine Driver") born amongst the picturesque landscape of McLaren Vale.
Their wines are built on the philosophy that "The right variety grown in right place, farmed in a sustainable fashion" is going to produce the best fruit and it looks like a winning formula.
They focus on the classic Rhone varieties that have built the reputation of "The Vale" as well as adventuring into the realms of the likes of Nero d'Avola, Saperavi and Nebbiolo. Their wines have a distinct, textural feel, are brilliantly packaged and first class value for money.
