2011 Luke Lambert Shiraz Crudo
Region: Yarra Yarra Valley, Port Phillip, Victoria, Australia
Medium ruby red with some garnet hues. Nice and juicy on the nose with raspberries, strawberries, funky, minerality and damp leaves. Balanced acidity (6/10) and medium tannins (4.5/10) with a medium minus body. Drinking nicely right now especially with food (grilled octopus). Layered with twigs, raspberries, black currants, dried roses, tart cherries and crushed gravel. Long finish.
