It’s juicy and fresh, but has restraint, and a fine chalky texture... Outstanding.

About The Wine

Here's one of the most no-brainer Rosé buys ever.

Luke Lambert. The Yarra Valley. The 2017 vintage. It all came together. This is a blistering Rosé from Luke.

The winemaking remains pretty much unchanged; the wine is fermented in oak, the lees worked throughout, bottled unfined and unfiltered. Luke likes a little funk and chew in his Rosé and he says this is his best yet.

Gary Walsh awarded it a massive 95 points on The Wine Front. If you've been a fan of this wine in the past, you're going to love the 2017 version.

 

About Luke Lambert

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 place and terroir, and of minimal intervention in the winery.

Contrary to many of his Pinot Noir-obsessed contemporaries in the Yarra, Luke focuses on Syrah and Nebbiolo as his flagship red varieties. He uses judicious amounts of whole bunch in his traditionally inspired winemaking, gently drawing out the very essence of the special sites he sources fruit from.

There is little doubt Luke will continue to produce some of the region’s most exciting wines over the coming years, he is a future icon of this Victorian region.

The Wine Front

"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." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Complex, textural, seductive yet vibrant and lip-smackingly delicious--this is pretty much everything you could hope for a bottle of rosé to deliver.

It's a blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Denton Nebbiolo; whole bunch pressed, the cloudy juice sent to tank for wild ferment and wild malo before storage in 5,000-litre French oak foudre.

Bottled, as usual, without filtration. Paler and more coppery that last year, this is an outstanding dry rosé by any measure. Luke himself reckons it's the best he's produced yet. Zero argument from us. 

Blend : Shiraz (80%), Nebbiolo (20%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Screw Cap
