About the producer: Luke Lambert is part of recent wave of Australian winemakers looking to create wines in contrast to the traditional heavy style, aiming instead to show fresh acidity, pure fruit, and limited oak influence. He takes a very hands-on approach to his craft, intervening minimally in the actual wines, but carefully ensuring the best environment for the innate characteristics of the grapes to shine.
