Another great Chardonnay from this artisan, Yarra producer. The 2019 Luke Lambert Chardonnay undergoes wild yeast fermentation and wild malolactic fermentation. Matured in large, old, French oak Foudre and bottled without fining or filtration.
Subtle chamomile and honey mint perfume, white peach and lemon barley water. It’s flinty and tight, but kind of gentle too. A wine of delicacy and quiet charm, just enough flavour, cool, clean and saline, with crunch, Japanese ginger, and ripe lemon in the aftertaste. It’s a beautiful and most refreshing thing to drink. I love it. 95 points – Gary Walsh, The Winefront
