The sixth version of this wine. As always Lino Ramble are chasing a fresh fruit-driven easy drinking style. Shiraz in it’s youth can have quite an “edgy” tannin structure, so they kept the skin contact time to just 5 days during fermentation. The addition of Bastardo gives this unique blend lift and pop, but also helps to soften the finish too.
Fruit was hand harvested, wild fermented with no added acid, enzymes or fining agents. Gentle maceration, cool fermentation temperature and minimal skin contact time has ensured retained freshness and varietal flavour and texture. No oak was used with this blend.
Bottled July 2022
