Luke Lambert Chardonnay 2020

LUKE LAMBERT IS ONE OF THE YARRA VALLEY'S GREAT WINEMAKING TALENTS. HIS ESTATE CHARDONNAY IS STAGGERINGLY BEAUTIFUL IN ALL ITS DELICACY AND REFINEMENT.    

"Lambert's Yarra Valley Chardonnay has traditionally been sourced from the windy, east-facing slope of the Tibooburra vineyard, a site where the poor volcanic soils (with seams of yellow clay and eroded granite) offer up the low yields and intensely flavoured berries that are sine qua non to Lambert's minimal-intervention style. 

The 2020 Chardonnay marks a slight shift in style, with Lambert now also sourcing from a second parcel of the same vineyard. This new parcel lies on a sunnier slope facing northwest, and has double the vine density and a higher proportion of red volcanic soil. This all adds more muscle and layers to the spine of the fruit from the eastern-facing slope. Both blocks are now blended together, enhancing the wine's texture while still retaining the coolness and elegance inherent in the Tibooburra DNA.

It's a super release for this wine but undoubtedly more generous than in the past (and all the better for it). There are waves of generous Chardonnay fruit with ripe nectarine and creamy, lees-induced texture and then crystalline, pithy, citrus notes to close along with a hint of classy oak. It's a wonderfully polished Chardonnay from an Australian master." - Bibendum
