2020 Marco Lubiana Lucille Chardonnay
Handpicked, 100% whole bunch pressed, 100% french oak, no fining, estate bottled(with TCA tested corks). Lucille Vineyard, located in the Huon valley, 30 minutes’ drive south of Hobart, is a cool climate vineyard originally planted in 1973 by Steve Ferenze. These old vines are planted on a grey clay, containing riverbed stones covered by a sandy loam top soil. The vineyard is now certified Biodynamic. Biodynamics is crucial for maintaining biodiversity in the soil, vines and surrounding environment. My Chardonnay is carefully handpicked and yields are kept low to maintain fruit concentration.
