LUKE LAMBERT Syrah, Yarra Valley 2013


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #44


This Syrah comes from coolest microclimate of the Yarra Valley. A single vineyard wine which comes from the south-west sloping, Tibooburra Vineyard in the south-eastern corner of the Valley. The 2013 contains a little less whole bunch this year - 30% (down from 40%) and is a classic expression of Syrah. As this opens it releases pretty aromas of raspberries and dark berries woven together with fresh violets, cracked pepper and spices along with a dried rosemary and meaty character, which begin to take shape with air. On the palate this is absolutely gorgeous, silky and refined with remarkable balance and finesse. It continues to impress all the way through the finish, with its sleek texture and precise flavors. Although still youthful, this is already outstanding, and should continue to show even better as it blossoms with bottle age. This is an atypical Australian Syrah, and readers who enjoy traditional Northern Rhône Syrah should pay close attention to what Luke Lambert is doing in the Yarra Valley.
