A wine that balances the new-wave Australian tendency for lots of spiky stemminess on one hand, with graceful fruit and highly complex aromas from ambient yeast, far beyond the madding crowd. A wine of sheer class. 13.5% alcohol, yet powerful with compelling intensity of flavor and length. Will age gracefully to boot although can be approached now.

Clear crimson-red; the fragrant, almost perfumed, bouquet is full of red fruits and spices, and you don't expect the much fuller and more savoury flavours on the complex palate and textured finish. An impressive wine.

Absolutely compelling and a dead ringer for a top Côte-Rôtie, the 2010 Luke Lambert Syrah Yarra Valley offers up gorgeous aromas of fresh black and red raspberry, cracked black pepper, wild flowers, and bacon-like meaty qualities on the nose. Medium to full-bodied on the palate and gorgeously balanced and fresh, this opens up in the glass, has brilliant concentration, racy acidity, and a seamless, elegant finish. This beauty will easily pass undetected in a lineup of top northern Rhônes, and will drink brilliantly for 10-12+ years.

Opaque ruby. Smoky, mineral-driven aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, cured meat and violets, plus a strong spicecake overtone.

Smoky, mineral-driven aromas of black raspberry, cherry-cola, cured meat and violets, plus a strong spicecake overtone. Intense red berry flavors are lifted by tangy minerality and pick up a floral pastille character with aeration. Impressively energetic and focused, finishing with sexy notes of candied violet and smoky spices and superb length.

Luke Lambert's 2010 Syrah was fermented using wild yeast with 60% whole bunches included and matured in 27 year old, large format oak barrels before bottling without fining or filtration. It offers a complex nose of ripe black berries, red plums and blueberries over hints of dried Mediterranean herbs, black pepper, black truffles, salami, star anise and damp loam. Medium-bodied and well-poised on the palate, it has a great intensity of vibrant, layered flavors supported by crisp acid and a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins, finishing long. Approachable now, it should have good cellaring potential and drink to 2021+. This is a wonderfully stylish and contemporary cooler-climate Aussie Syrah well worth seeking-out! 576 cases were produced. --Lisa Perrotti-Brown
