Wine Front 95+ Points!


 Strong, silent type is Luke Lambert, though get the engine warmed up and he’s a bundle of fun and, importantly, insight into wine and winemaking. These chardonnays typically quite powerful yet fine boned. No disappointment here. Natural fermentation, no filtering and fining are calling cards here. Reminds me of the 2015 release of this wine.


Such an attractive wine, undeniably complex, but also with a gulpability that tugs you back into your glass. Saline, tangy, flinty-mineral acidity is a major player here, but there’s cereal and halva savouriness built around it. The perfume is all steely citrus and flint, grapefruit and green apple, so fresh feeling and appealing. There’s a luxurious length and lingering feel to the wine too. It’s tightly wound but supremely balanced above all. You can take all the fanciness here and lavish in it, but deliciousness is the trump card.
