Stefano Lubiana Estate Chardonnay 2019

  • Vegan Suitable
  • Certified Biodynamic
  • Certified Organic

The most layered and complex of the three Chardonnays from Stefano Lubiana, the ‘Estate’ is a classic example of a robust but beautifully balanced cool climate wine. This wine has all the elements of a great Chardonnay present – fruit, oak, acid, creamy texture and complexity, but no element overpowers the other. 

A delightful and charming top notch Chardonnay, one glass won't be enough. A wonderful wine to enjoy now, or watch it grow and develop over the years.

Stefano Lubiana 

Tasmania’s first and only certified biodynamic vineyard has been cultivating vines using biodynamic methods since 2010. This means that their wines are free of all synthetic treatments, additives and pesticides. Instead they travel the alternative path, stepping back in time and using cosmic rhythms to ensure soil regenereation as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year’s seasonal cycles.

Their much sought-after wines are the result of a passionate unrelenting quest for perfection. This passion, along with free thinking and attention to detail allows them to create wines which reflect this vision. Their focus on traditional and environmentally sensitive principals has only strengthened their desire to create wines that have a unique and distinctive character, with free-flowing elegance and quality.

Mike Bennie: "There are a bunch of different strata of chardonnay at SL these days but I think this is what could be called ‘Estate’. Biodynamic farmed. Fresh as you like. What a lovely, delicious, moreish thing this is. This is the chardonnay you jam into people’s faces and say ‘hey, this is what quality wine is’. It oozes charm, sleek and slick in texture, fresh fruit seasoned appropriately with spice, lemon curd, fresh stone fruit, minerally licks like pumice and talc, zingy acidity, all even, all matched, seamless and flowing and so darn good. Just beautiful."

Jeni Port Halliday Wine Companion 2021 95 points

A wine with strong Tasmanian credentials including an inner energy, steely reserve and powerful acidity. That's the groundwork for a long-lived chardonnay, right there. Immediately reserved and still youthful with grapefruit pith, lemon curd, cut pear, fleshy mango. Good, strong backbone in play with a linear line of citrus infusion. A waiting game kind of wine, be patient.
