About the Wine
La Linea is the work of two Adelaide Hills legends Peter Leske and David LeMire.
They’ve developed a sharp focus on Spain’s Tempranillo, a grape often only thought of as coming from hotter climes.
But with the depth of a decade’s experience sourcing ‘temp’ across a range of Hills vineyards, they skilfully impart this suave, savoury medium bodied red with both fragrance and structure.
About La Linea
La Linea is a collaboration between two highly experienced wine professionals: David LeMire MW and Peter Leske.
Their first vintage was in 2007, after Peter could not get the imagined aroma and taste of a pale, dry, fine Tempranillo rosé out of his mind. He knew an Adelaide Hills vineyard which produced fruit perfect for the wine… and La Linea was born.
The team has also made dry red Tempranillo for over a decade, always in fundamentally the same style: medium-bodied, with the variety’s typical fleshy mid-palate, drying tannins, and lower alcohol than many contemporary Aussie reds.
