Stalwart biodynamic winemaker Steve Lubiana is meticulous both in the vineyard and cellar. Unsurprisingly, this approach results in precise and expressive wines that showcase the best of south-eastern Tasmania.
This is graceful but powerful chardonnay from a producer who really knows how to showcase what the vineyard gives. In this case, a single vineyard that is only bottled as such in years where the conditions are excellent and it can speak its piece. Time is the glass reveals intriguing nuances.
