Luke Lambert Crudo Rosé 2019

Yarra Valley, Victoria, AustraliaPouring a shining peach orange hue, this Yarra Valley blend of syrah and nebbiolo was an early pick, whole bunch pressed, and native fermented with MLF in seasoned oak foudres before it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Super savoury, it's hard to find much fruit here save for some spring rhubarb. Bergamot, tangerine pith, earl grey tea, crunchy Asian pear acidity, and perfumed rosehips float over a bed of wild meadow grasses and broken stones. Acidity is tight, holding this to a hum throughout. Adventuresome, direct, and a super interesting (geek) wine that is smashable.Tasted: 25 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 45.00 private wine shops Producer: Luke LambertDistributors: Sur Lie
