ARTICLES ABOUT THIS WINE

Luke Lambert Crudo Syrah 2011

Crudo Shiraz is made in a very similar style to Lambert's Syrah and Reserve Syrah but it's declassified fruit from a lower part of the vineyard which has a bit more soil fertility and available soil moisture and tends to crop slightly bigger berries and as a result lighter wine, built more around a core of acid and bright red fruit. This makes a lovely light-medium bodied Shiraz and is a very flexible as a food wine. Wild yeast fermented, wild malo, and bottled without fining or filtration. 40% whole bunches are used, skin contact is limited and the wine doesn't see any new oak; half the volume is matured in 27 year old puncheons and the other half is matured in tank. Crudo is all about retaining the vibrancy, freshness, and lightness of the wine.
