About

Luke Lambert is one of the Yarra Valley’s most talented younger generation winemakers. His low-intervention winemaking style has been producing effortless wines over the last decade. Low-fi winemaking with quality at its heart.

This comes from the cool, east-facing slope of the Tibooburra vineyard and is a gorgeous reflection of the site. The 2016 season was warmer than usual for the site/region, however, Luke cleverly employed more lees stirring this vintage to soften the ripe fruit characters and dial in texture and complexity without taking away from the character and purity of the fruit.

Tiny volumes available as always of one the best Australian Chardonnays of the new vanguard.

What It Tastes Like

Riper than last year’s, more grunt and chewy texture, too. Yellow peaches and grapefruit on a creamy bed of fluffy lees. Acid is still tight as it threads like a needle through the main body of the wine. A soft powdery grip on the finish. Succulent Chardonnay of style and panaché.
