One of Australia’s most humble and innately talented winemakers, Luke Lambert consistently produces a stunning array of Yarra Valley wines. Lambert believes the shape of a wine should be governed by what soil you’re on, the aspect, the amount of sunshine and rain.” In other words, the personality of a wine will be dictated by its “place”.
Always one of our most popular Rosés, the 2023 Lambert Crudo Rosé is another vibrant, complex and all-round delicious example. Sourced entirely from the granite-rich Denton vineyard, the 2023 Crudo Rosé is 95% Shiraz with a 5% lift from Nebbiolo off the same site. The vines have spent 16 years in these rocky soils, facing northwest from near the top of the cone-shaped slope. The fruit was pressed as whole bunches and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless-steel tank. The wine completed malolactic conversion and was bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulphur.
From the cool, low-cropping 2023 season, we agree with Luke’s assertion that this is the most refined and perfumed rosé he’s made. It’s got a lot in common with the bright, red-fruited and fragrant 2022 but feels more vinous and savoury and shows a touch more elegance and mineral appeal. It’s got al fresco dining written all over it.
