2018 Lino Ramble Red Rover Pinot Noir

2018 Lino Ramble Red Rover Pinot Noir

Recommendations

Here's the inside scoop on one of the Pinot bargains of 2019: 

Andy Coppard & Angela Townsend of super-cool McLaren Vale winery Lino Ramble have announced that this 2018 Red Rover Adelaide Hill Pinot Noir the final release, as they can no longer get access to the grapes anymore.

Rather than let it slip slowly into the night, we've bought all we could get our hands on. 

This Red Rover is a special wine too. Made from the Woodshill Vineyard in Piccadilly, there were just 115 dozen produced. Using handpicked fruit and 50% whole bunches, it spent 45 days on skins, with no acid additions and no fining.

It is a super fine Pinot, from a small maker delivering some of the coolest wines in the land AND the last ever cases, without even mentioning the crazy price...

Who made it?

'Lino Ramble :a name put together to represent texture (Lino), and adventure (Ramble) is just the two of us - Andy Coppard and Angela Townsend'. Using fruit from select spots throughout South Australia, but largely focused on McLaren Vale, Lino Ramble has made a name with thoughtfully made, handmade wines. Their ethos is great too: 'The overarching idea behind our range of wines is using grape varieties we find intriguing, interesting and drinkable. We make wines stylistically to complement the food we like to eat'.
