La Línea Tempranillo

I have long admired La Línea as one of Australia’s more authentic takes on tempranillo, and 2011 is a particularly flattering vintage for this wine. The cool season has coaxed out more varietal integrity than ever, in an elegant and poised demeanour of black fruits, mixed spice and classic 2011 pink pepper notes, topped off with finely textured tannins and a long aftertaste. $24 at Discount Wines.
