About The Wine
Luke Lambert's 'entry level' Crudo Shiraz has always been terrific value for money, but the 2017 looks to be the finest release yet.
It comes from the near-perfect 2017 vintage, a growing season Luke has suggested may wind up as a "vintage of a lifetime". It has all the perfume, freshness and 'old world' character that makes Luke's Shiraz/Syrah so unique, with an added degree of fruit concentration. It's delicious.
Lovers of Luke's wines and/or cool climate Shiraz, back up the truck.
About Luke Lambert
Luke Lambert is one of the Yarra Valley's great winemaking talents.
His traditionally inspired winemaking gently draws out the unique voice of the special vineyards he sources fruit from. He focuses on cooler sites in the Yarra, looking for precise, streamlined expressions of Nebbiolo, Syrah and Chardonnay. These wines under his eponymous label are considered by many as benchmark wines in this country.
His Crudo label offers exceptional value for money. The Shiraz, Chardonnay and Rosé are built in a more generous style without compromising quality. They offer a brilliant balance of complexity and drinkability.
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.
