Tempranillo? 
Spain’s  great  red  grape! It is  grown across the country  in  diverse  climates and made into many styles. Renowned UK writer and critic Jancis Robinson describes it as “... capable of making deep coloured, long‐lasting wines that are not notably high in alcohol...”, with characters including “strawberries... spice, leather and tobacco leaves...”. 
 
It's  no  longer  a  newbie  in  Australia,  but  our  experience  exceeds  that  of many makers. La Linea was involved in the planting of the first block in the Hills in 1998, and their ‘Temp’ winemaking experience dates back to 2001. 
 
Our style: 
The aim has always been to make a fragrant, medium‐bodied but savoury wine. It’s what the Hills does best from this variety. 
 
The elevated Kuitpo block offers red berry perfume and finesse, while the lower and warmer Macclesfield site provides the core of savoury tannin for which the variety is noted. Blended, they make a wine with youthful appeal and approachability, but satisfying depth and length. 
 
A  wine  of  balance  and  poise,  but  with  a  structure  which  will  see  it  soften and gain complexity in bottle over 5‐10 years.  

Alc/Vol: 13.5%
