Luke Lambert Crudo Rose 2017


"back to top form in 2017 for this wine...Outstanding"  Gary Walsh

'I was chatting with Giuseppe Vajra last week, talking Nebbiolo, and he commented that he thought Luke Lambert’s was excellent. Agreed. And nice to hear.  Anyway, back to top form in 2017 for this wine. It’s a pleasant orange colour this year. Funny thing to say, but when I first tasted this, it reminded me of a blood orange, with a little carrot (earthy) and fresh ginger in the blend: a healthy feel to it, as it were. It’s juicy and fresh, but has restraint, and a fine chalky texture. The acid line is clean and driving, and the finish is particularly long and well-defined, tannin licking playfully. There’s a little campari/orange rind twist in the aftertaste, which is gustatory and encouraging. Outstanding.'  95 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

"Luke Lambert graduated from CSU's wine science course in 2002, aged 23, cramming in winemaking experience at Mount Pleasant, Coldstream Hills, Mount Prior, Poet's Corner, Palliser Estate in Martinborough, and Badia di Morrona in Chianti. He purchases grapes from quality-conscious growers in the Yarra Valley and Heathcote. He has now settled in the Yarra Valley,leasing slightly less than 1ha of Heathcote nebbiolo,and larger amounts of Yarra Valley shiraz and nebbiolo. The wines are wild yeast-fermented and bottled without fining or filtration" James Halliday
