Touch of class but still brilliant drinkability.
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.
