95 Points - Gary Walsh

Luke Lambert is widely recognised as one of Australia's most talented young winemakers. A passionate winemaker with a strong European influence, Lambert is a strong advocate of natural processes in winemaking. The Luke Lambert Crudo Rose is always a benchmark example of Aussie Rose and the newly released 2017 vintage will be welcomed by the many fans of this wine.

Complex, textural and lip- smackingly delicious, this is pretty much everything you could hope for a bottle of rosé to deliver. A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Nebbiolo; whole bunch pressed, the cloudy juice sent to tank for wild ferment and wild malo before storage in 5,000-litre French oak foudre. Bottled as usual without filtration, this is an outstanding dry Rosé that Luke Lambert believes is the best he's produced yet.

"95 Points. Funny thing to say, but when I first tasted this, it reminded me of a blood orange, with a little carrot (earthy) and fresh ginger in the blend: a healthy feel to it, as it were. It’s juicy and fresh, but has restraint, and a fine chalky texture. The acid line is clean and driving, and the finish is particularly long and well-defined, tannin licking playfully. There’s a little campari/ orange rind twist in the aftertaste, which is gustatory and encouraging. Outstanding. Tasted: Aug18 Alcohol: 12.5% Price: $25 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2018 - 2024"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.

Complex, textural, seductive yet vibrant and lip-smackingly delicious--this is pretty much everything you could hope for a bottle of rosé to deliver. A blend of 80% Syrah and 20% Denton Nebbiolo; whole bunch pressed, the cloudy juice sent to tank for wild ferment and wild malo before storage in 5,000-litre French oak foudre. Bottled, as usual, without filtration. Paler and more coppery than last year, this is an outstanding dry rosé by any measure.
