About The Wine

Never one to sit still, winemaker Luke Lambert has given the Crudo Rosé a facelift this vintage.

Where in the past it has been made as one of the 'funkier' Rosés in the country, this year Luke is going for ultimate drinkability. He's also souced some new fruit for this wine, Shiraz from a 15 year old Upper Ngumbie vineyard which has added another dimension to this hugely popular wine.

The winemaking remains pretty much unchanged; the wine is fermented in oak, the lees worked throughout, bottled unfined and unfiltered. This might be the most 'smashable' iteration of Crudo Rosé to date. If you've been a fan of this wine in the past, you're going to love the 2016 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

"Raspberry and cranberry, spice, with a nice crunch and bit of texture, juiciness and subtle savoury counterpoint, crisp and slightly earthy to close. Good drinking." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Complex, textural, seductive yet vibrant and refreshing, this is pretty much everything you could hope for a bottle rose to deliver. It's a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Denton Nebbiolo, whole bunch pressed with roughly a third of the juice fermented on full solids in old French oak; wild ferment & wild malo and aging on lees.

Perhaps a little less funky than previous years - more juicy fruit driven - yet still plenty of 'solids' action for fans of the style. Bottled, as usual, without filtration. What's new this vintage is the Shiraz fruit, which now comes from a 15 year old Upper Ngumbie vineyard. 

Blend : Shiraz (70%), Nebbiolo (30%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Screw Cap
