Stefano Lubiana - 2018
The popular Primavera Chardonnay is sourced entirely from the Lubiana certified biodynamic vineyard above the river – reflecting the seasonality of Tasmania’s beautiful Derwent Valley. The wine’s palate is restrained and well structured, combining juicy acidity and fine oak tannins with some lovely lemony/nectarine fruit. Its time on lees (expired yeasts cells) has not only added complexity to the range of aromas and flavours, but also given extra weight to the palate which means that it can be enjoyed with some quite substantial food dishes.
17/20 – JancisRobinson.com, ‘Beautiful fruit – so pure and intense that I got goosebumps down my arms. Coiled like a spring. Ripe nectarines and sweet lime, oatmeal and cream. Tingling, tight-weave, gangster-cool acidity. Drink 2019-2026‘ Tamlyn Currin, February 2019 (2017 vintage)
