Stefano Lubiana “Estate” Tasmania Chardonnay 2014

Standard

It came as a surprise to me that the last Stefano Lubiana Estate Chardonnay that I did a formal promotion on was for the 2008 vintage.

Why is this so? Well, one of the reasons is that Stefano Lubiana’s Estate Chardonnay often sells out before it gets a promotion done on it by me.

For this vintage, the 2014, I brought up a little more than usual for a proposed event that didn’t eventuate. Such are a retailer’s risks.

But, it’s the way it sold out downunder that also accounted for the fact that I can find no rating on this wine. Except one that matters. Although not strictly a rating in the normal sense, this wine was awared Gold Trophy at the 2016 International Organic Wine competition in Germany. That makes it the equivalent of 95 points in their score. Stefano Lubiana’s Pinot Noir from the same vintage was given “best biodynamic wine in the world” at the same show.

So, a special wine and a personal favourite.
