Description

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.

A warm/dry early summer quickly turned cooler, with significant rain in late summer and into Autumn. There were still plenty of sunshine hours to flavour ripen Chardonnay and the wine shows both the coolness of the harvest period in it’s acid retention and the sunny fruit of early/mid Summer.

The 2020 Chardonnay shows a slight shift in style as we now source fruit from a second part of the Tibooburra vineyard facing North West. This sunnier slope has double the vine density and a higher proportion of red volcanic soil, adding a touch more muscle to the Eastern facing slope which we continue to source. Both blocks blended together add a few more layers of interest to the wine and a slightly richer mouthfeel while still retaining the coolness and elegance inherent in the Tibooburra Vineyard.

Customer Reviews

Lambert Wines

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.

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
