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.
