Tasting Notes

A richer cool climate Syrah this year from Luke. Rich in complexity and fruit weight without being jammy or alcoholic or fat. It's a balanced flavoursome wine where it's layers kepp building over the palate. The vintage was a lot later in 2017 (picking in late March), so the fruit hung out on the vine for a lot longer and was therefore able to develop more flavour. The stems were also a lot riper so he used 85% whole bunch, giving the wine more structure and a savoury attitude. I was absolutely blown away by this wine this year. It's without a doubt the best Syrah Luke Lambert has made. - Chris L

From the first wines made in his garage, Luke Lambert has evolved his winemaking to be a genuine expression of site and fruit. He doesn't add, tweak, remove or fuss with the wines, utilising natural ferments, no temperature control, no new oak, and no fining or filtration. Just pure juice.

As a young boy, Luke dreamed of being a winemaker. After finishing school, he travelled throughout Europe, experiencing the finesse and elegance of French and Italian wines, before enrolling in a Wine Science degree from Charles Sturt.

On his return to Australia, he was drawn to the Yarra Valley, establishing Luke Lambert Wines in the northern region of Dixons Creek. The wines he produces here are wonderfully perfumed, fine-boned, and elegant expressions of Chardonnay, Syrah and Nebbiolo. They capture the essence of the vineyards that he works with, showcasing just how world-class Yarra wines can be.

Everything he does in the winery is lo-fi, minimal intervention so as not to allow winemaker artifice to eclipse the true voice of the wine. His are wines that so clearly speak of terroir.

Luke also produces the Crudo label, which offers incredible value (for when you don't want to spring for the Estate stuff!) making a Chardonnay and Shiraz. These have a little more grunt and flesh than his black label estate wines, and are definitely worth seeking out.
