Stefano Lubiana Sasso Pinot Noir 2017

  • Vegan Suitable
  • Certified Biodynamic
  • Certified Organic

The pinnacle of the Stefano Lubiana Pinots. Only made in exceptional years from a very careful selection of low cropped fruit off the three unique Pinot Noir blocks. This is a brooding medium-weighted wine, with oodles of dark fruits, warm spice and savoury notes, with fine lingering tannins.

The 2017 is only the seventh year of Sasso.

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.

Jeni Port Halliday Wine Companion 2021 - 95 points

From a fab year in Tasmania comes a pinot noir - the company's icon pinot, to be precise - that beautifully exemplifies the meaning of a 'brooding' young red. It's a challenge to describe, you drink it in large gulps of verbiage. Dark, dense, back-to-back black fruits, stewed rhubarb, truffle and leather, violets. It's both savoury and fruit-focused, red licorice mixes it up with smoky clove and cigar box. Tannins run and run. And still so young.
