Luke Lambert Crudo Rosé 2014

I’d been hanging on to this Rosé for a while. The Crudo Rosé caused a stir upon its release as being a no-holds-barred kinda wine. Not your sitting in the sun during long brunches. A blend of 80% Shiraz and 20% Nebbiolo.

Luke Lambert, Crudo Rosé, Yarra Valley, 2014

The colour is a dusky peachy/orange. Still carrying plenty of body and flavour. White cherry, fragrant choc orange, peach slices, a hint of development with a pickled walnut earthiness. The body almost slippery with integrated tannins and still a pin prick of acidity that refreshes and lifts. Flavour wise, there’s a dichotomy of leathery, meaty development and primary crunchy red fruits. A lovely bottle of wine to enjoy.
