About The Wine

This is one of the better versions of Montepulciano you will find anywhere in Australia at the moment.

This is organically certified fruit from McLaren Vale. Monte is such a perfect variety for McLaren Vale, it loves the warm days during harvest.

And it's such a great variety for Australia - the combination of rich fruit and spicy/savoury finish that is typical of the variety complements modern Australian cuisine perfectly.

Mike Bennie awarded this 93 points. 

It's serious yet seriously smashable.

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.

The Wine Front

"Deep perfume, fragrant with plum, dark cherry, black pepper, some cranberry and new leather. Slurpy texture with bright acidity underlying, good concentration of flavour, pippy cherry characters, lick of chocolatey-oak character, but not overly overt, just a sense of some wood chew and spice. Nice tannins through the wine, ripe, then a chomp to finish. Good example here. Touch of class but still brilliant drinkability." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
