Recent guest of my podcast (The Vincast) Daniel Fischl gave me a bottle of each of his currently available wines, and one of them was the 2013 vintage of the Linnaea Vineyards Arlequin Cabernet Sauvignon from the Heathcote region in Victoria. I opened the bottle, and these are my impressions.

Daniel Fischl didn’t find working in laboratories particularly appealing, and whilst completing a PhD in Plant Molecular Genetics at UC Davis (California) he was introduced to viticulture and was seduced with what lay outside. It also helped that the viticulture and winemaking students seemed to have more fun. Fast forward many years of experience consulting as a viticulturist and agricultural scientist, he and his winemaker wife Michelle started the Linnaea Vineyards project with a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. As he got work consulting in vineyards around the world he and Michelle discovered more terroirs and made more wines, across a number of continents and expressions.
