The wine is a straw yellow colour, clear, with fine golden flecks. The aroma is intense, fragrant with pleasant apricot and citrus notes. The finish is elegant and delicately mineral.

2021 began with a few snowfalls covering our rolling hills. The growing season started early as temperatures gradually rose. Spring was relatively normal. Summer was overall dry and windy with high average temperatures and a thunderstorm in July. The diurnal fluctuations in temperature in September helped the grapes “cool down” and preserve their natural acidity.

Linea Retta is a winemaking collaboration between two renowned winemakers: Italy’s Giorgio Rivetti and Australia’s Larry Cherubino.

The name ‘Linea Retta’ (an Italian expression that can be translated as ‘in a direct line’) refers to their shared ‘vineyard first’ winemaking philosophies. Larry love’s of Italy in particular the wines of Piedmont meant that when the opportunity arose to collaborate with Giorgio he could not resist. “I have admired Giorgio’s wines from the first time I was introduced to ‘Pin’ in London almost 20 years ago and never thought I would be working with the man himself, so I feel incredibly lucky!” Linea Retta is the result.
