2022 Lino Ramble Marco Polo Sangiovese

What elevates this wine is its finesse. It tastes of earth, leather and red cherries, with roasted spice notes sprinkled throughout, but it’s the interplay of tannin, fruit and acidity that puts a skip in its step, an elegant twirl, that that’s enough to give it something. Read more

Tasting Notes

Beautiful notes of Santa Rosa plums, cherries and five-spice. Firm tannins and a fresh natural acidity, Andy was captivated by this noble grape and its tightly held charms, that originally comes from Central Italy.

Winemakers Note

The regions milder summer and warm autumn resulted in a
gentle and slow ripening period, producing outstanding fruit. We
didn’t have one day above 40C and only a handful above 35C.
Fantastic conditions for ripening all wine-grape varieties, less so
for a knock-off swing and cleansing ale at Port Willunga beach.
Yields were generally lower compared to 2021 but flavour
intensity is exceptional with amazing levels of natural acidity for
both red and white wines. La Nina influenced vintage in much of
eastern states, but McLaren ale had its mildest weather
conditions in recent memory.
 

WINEMAKING
