Bloody good bastardo
About The Wine
Bastardo is what the call Trousseau in the north west corner of Spain and Portugal. And McLaren Vale apparently!
A deliciously graceful, light expression with some whole bunch herbal notes and a slippery mouthfeel. No oak, some extended time on skins to give a fine tannin structure.
Sourced from Chalk Hill in McLaren Vale, this is a cracking, elegant wine that is more than a poolside quaffer. For fans of refined Pinot Noir.
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 venturing into the realms of Nero d'Avola, Saperavi and Nebbiolo. Their wines have a distinct, textural feel, are brilliantly packaged and first class value for money.
