La Linea Temperanillo, Adelaide Hills 2008 Review

Huon Hooke’s pick for the SMH wine of the week this week is the La Linea Temperanillo, Adelaide Hills 2008. Huon Hooke writes:

Produced by former Nepenthe winemaker Peter Leske and master of wine David LeMire, this is one of the most delicious Australian temperanillos to come my way. It’s medium-bodied and doesn’t try too hard to impress. Instead, it glides over the palate with elegance and harmony, inviting another sip…. and another. Toasted-nut, vanilla and cherry/plum aromas lead into a soft, smooth palate with flesh and charm, No sharp edges, just terrific drinkabilitiy, And it compliments food well. Best now to six years, possibly longer. Moderate alcohol (13.5 per cent); screwcapped. 91/100.

Food – Lighter casseroles with lamb or goat; veal parmigiana; vitello tonnato.
