Join us in the Loft this Friday from 4 pm - we will be tasting the delicious wines from Luke Lambert. Luke is undoubtedly one of the hottest names in Australian wine. His thoughtful wines, crafted from exceptional sites in the Yarra Valley have struck a chord with wine drinkers in Australia and around the world. He makes vibrant, pure fruited Syrah and exceptionally complex Chardonnay from the Tibooburra Vineyard. His seasonal expressions of Nebbiolo from the Denton Vineyard have helped sparked a conversation in the region, with people talking about the potential for it to be the region’s next great variety. Luke is not just making wines that are delicious, interesting and thought-provoking, he is making wines that are distinctive, wines that are unique and speak of place. But they are also instantly recognisable as Luke Lambert wines, wines that couldn’t be made by anyone else.

The vineyard lies on the south side of the Calgardup Brook just south of Witchcliffe. With a gentle northerly aspect allowing less direct sunlight and the westerly influence this is a very good vineyard and produces outstanding parcels of Shiraz and Chardonnay. Biodynamic is similar to organic farming in that both take place without chemicals, but biodynamic farming incorporates ideas about a vineyard as an ecosystem, and also accounting for things such as astrological influences and lunar cycles.
Pinot Grigio, Pecorino, Vermentino! This Saturday from 11am-2pm in the front courtyard we will be tasting some of our favourite dry Italian white wines. Made to pair perfectly with Perth’s summer heat and fresh seafood. Come and have a taste alongside some of the Boatshed’s best Italian cheeses and prolong the summer holidays!
