Luke Lambert Chardonnay 2012

Like many of the Luke Lambert wines, they have a rough edge and take a little time in the glass to reveal their true personalities. As the label says, "Wild yeast fermentation, wild malolatic fermentation, no temperature control and bottled without fining or filtration."

And true to form, this Chardy warmed up to the task nicely. Margarine, lemonade, slight peach and citrus blossom aromas though the latter two were quite muted.

The fruit is soft and smooth and carries a little minerality. Great length which fleshes out well and leaves a slight cheesy type finish.

Curiosity makes you go back time and time again. That's got to be a good thing, no?

The sold out sign is up on the website but you will be able to find stock at good independent retailers.

Very good.
