About

Luke Lambert is one of the young guns of the Yarra Valley. His wines are distinctly ‘old world’ in style, with his philosophy being all about wines reflecting their terroir with minimal intervention in the winery.

Lambert’s ‘entry level’ 2016 Crudo Shiraz (the little brother to his flagship Syrah) is just terrific value for money.

The fruit this year comes from the Denton View vineyard, a warmer site than those he has used in the past for this wine. This year he has really gone all out in search of as much freshness as possible. Gary Walsh’s comments “This is quite a thing for the price. Get into it.” couldn’t be more spot-on.

This is another terrific example of the modern evolution of Australian Shiraz from an up-and-coming star producer. Funky and fun, if you don’t love drinking this, you are damn hard to please.

What It Tastes Like

“Raspberry and blackberry, plenty of cracked pepper and spice, and a certain smoky perfume that’s very alluring. It’s medium bodied, cool and refined, yet kind of fleshy and juicy, with this beautiful set of crushed rock tannin. Finish is long too. This is quite a thing for the price. Get into it.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
