Nice…very nice…..I thought it was about time I put up something exciting and different on the Whirly wine of the month page. Aussie Chardonnay, ok is not that different. But when its 2013 and from Tasmania, down near Hobart on the Granton river and its made by one of the best winemakers down under, it is different…..
Mr Whirly says:
“I have been luck enough to be working with Stefano Lubiana for over 10 years. This is sadly the last of the wines I have from this great winemaker so if you like Chardonnay that has the same cudos and feel of Burgundy but is clearly of its own identity, then you should try this. I only have a handful of bottles left.”
Review, Patrick Eckel: 2013 Stefano Lubiana Primavera ChardonnayOctober 20, 2015 Wine Rating 90
Stefano Lubiana is a producer with a focus on biodynamics, and has been crafting some excellent wines from Tasmania for a number of years now, with the Primavera range the entry level for the winery.
The nose is restrained and gives a mineral expression of white peach with a touch of oak.
The palate is lean in terms of fruit, with an enjoyable mouthfeel created through the competition of racy acidity and grapefruit pith. There is enough stone fruit, oak spice and cashew like complexity that suggest this will get even better with time.
