Luke Lambert Nebbiolo 2019

"Opaque garnet. A highly expressive bouquet evokes cherry cola, black raspberry, potpourri, and musky herbs, along with a subtle hint of blood orange. Silky and penetrating on the palate, offering sappy kirsch, red berry preserve and floral pastille flavors, that show an alluring sweetness and strong, mineral- and spice-driven lift. Polished tannins add shape to the impressively long finish, which strongly echoes the floral note. This is consistently among the best examples of the variety from the New World, and that is a very small group." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous (Sep 2022)

About Luke Lambert

Australian winemaker Luke Lambert has been described as “a genius” and “one of the most gifted winemakers in the country.” Based in the relatively cool climate Yarra Valley, Luke takes a minimalist and intuitive approach in the vineyard and the cellar, crafting elegant and soulful wines. His Chardonnay and Syrah are excellent, managing to effortlessly convey their terroir. But it’s Nebbiolo Luke is most passionate about and his focus on the variety has led to widespread acclaim.  

After tasting wines from the top producers in Barolo (Mascarello, Conterno, and Rinaldi), and time spent working in Piedmont, Luke fell in love with Nebbiolo. Many producers have attempted to make Nebbiolo outside of Northern Italy, often without success. Luke, however, produces stunning wines from the grape variety and the 2017 is the best example I’ve tasted outside of Italy.

The wines come from single vineyards where Luke farms organically (uncertified) and hand harvests. The winemaking philosophy is low intervention – wild yeast fermentations without temperature control, hand plunging the cap, long and gentle macerations, and no new oak. These are incredibly pure wines and among our absolute favourites here at Vinified.

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
