About The Wine
Luke Lambert is one of the Yarra Valley's most talented winemakers of his generation.
His low-intervention winemaking style has been producing effortless wines over the last decade. Low-fi winemaking with quality at its heart.
Luke's Chardonnay comes from the cool, east-facing slope of the Tibooburra vineyard. It is a gorgeous reflection of the site. The 2020 season was a cool, and long so an additional warmer slope on the vineyard was added to the blend bringing a little more flesh as a young wine, although the signature tension and drive in his Chardonnays remains.
Unfortunately there are smaller volumes than usual available for this release. It's one the finest Australian Chardonnays of the new vanguard. Act quick, it's almost sold out.
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.
