About The Wine

Luke Lambert's 'entry level' Crudo Shiraz is terrific value for money.

Luke is one of the modern superstars of the Yarra Valley. If you want to get to know his wine, this is the perfect place to start.

Luke makes this in a style which is more approachable in its youth than the exceptional, collectable Luke Lambert Syrah. A Yarra Valley Shiraz with drinkability as the focal point, it shows all the perfume, freshness and spice that makes Luke's Shiraz/Syrah so unique. The Crudo is ready to go now. 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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

A riot of raspberries, cherries and blackberries on the nose, with a faint dusting of cracked pepper and smoked meat. The palate flows effortlessly with darker fruits, spices galore and just-right gravelly tannin. Flavour and freshness galore. So delicious, so more-ish. - Different Drop Wine Team

The Wine Front

"Great release this one. It has a sparkling clarity and energy about it, I feel. Aside from that, you may find raspberries and blackberries, cracked pepper, spice, and a distinct sort of warm bricks smell, but don’t mind me. It’s fine and fresh, with graphite tannin, and a cool spiced bramble fruited finish of finesse and solid length." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

2017 is the best harvest I've seen in the Valley. It's broken the trend of early/warm Summer and Autumn periods and was wonderfully mild, long and slow. Rain at the right times and no scorching temperatures over Summer followed by a beautifully even, soft sunshine Autumn. The slow and long finish to the ripening period meant the fruit on the vine had excellent hang time and stayed in perfect condition. All adds up to lots of perfume, freshness and high acidity. In my view it was the perfect vintage, a 10 out of 10.

Blend : Shiraz (100%)
ABV : 13.00%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2027

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
