2019 Allora Cortese
Linnaea is a Victorian based winery that really turns the concept of agricultural sustainability on its head. Involved in SO many environment and socially developmental initiatives from beekeeping to working with the Autistic Spectrum disorder community to supporting indigenous food crops to full solar power, if you can think of it, they’re likely thinking of it too. They make wines that reflect their passion and zest for life, and you can really see it in their charming range. Not only that, they vinify in Melbourne, but also have a site in Piemonte, making wines there too. Non. Stop. Allora. The Cortese is one from the Italian range, an old and rare variety of unsure upbringings, this is textural in that slippery honey sense, full of preserved lemon and meadow flowers. A perfect drinking wine for spring time afternoons, or paired with fried chicken.
