Lienert Vineyards Roussanne 2020

Special Price $26.00 Regular Price $30.00
The Lienert Roussanne is a beautifully textural wine offering a complex mix of stonefruits, nuttiness, green tea, creaminess and a whisp of tannin to finish. The wine has spent time in old oak, being regularly less stirred to build texture. It is a cracking wine.

The Lienert’s have been farming their patch of dirt in the Western Ridge of the Barossa since 1854. Only the last 21 years have seen them growing vines. They have done pretty well though, with the first two vintages of Shiraz (2004 and 2005) finding their way into Penfold’s St Henri. They promptly planted a heap more vines and these days keep the best parcels of fruit for themselves, with multiple clones of Shiraz and Grenache, along with Mataro and Roussanne all in the ground.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot. The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys.

Just 60km northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. Warm and dry, it is renowned for producing the distinctive Barossa Shiraz, a full-bodied red with notes of chocolate and spice. The valleys and sloping hills create several temperature ranges. But in summer, take it from us: it's just plain hot.

The soils range from clay and loam in the cooler areas to the classically South Australian sand and red-brown loam in the valleys. Irrigation is often required, but with water supply an increasing problem, many growers are practicing dryland farming, relying on what falls from the sky and clings from night fog. Couple this with the number of very old vines in the region (which produce limited quantities of grapes), and the result is fruit with deeply concentrated flavour which quickly ripen. A great foundation for some of the world's most acclaimed reds.
