Stefano Lubiana Grande Vintage 2008

Stefano Lubiana Grande Vintage 2008

Pale straw with green-gold highlights. Excellent creamy mousse with persistent fine bead. Attractive toasty/pastry aromas with brioche and mushroom nuances. Wonderfully smooth, regal palate; great presence, with ripe vintage Pinot Noir influences balanced by efreshing/tangy natural acidity and our vineyard’s citrussy Chardonnay character. Despite the absence of oak in its winemaking, the wine is round, multi-layered and well-textured. Terrific persistence of flavour. Match with crab or pork dumplings; Chinese spring rolls; cold smoked salmon; whole barbecued lobster, cheese soufflés and the usual range of fine finger-foods and starters.

Stefano Lubiana Wines

When fifth-generation winemaker Steve Lubiana arrived in 1990, he saw not only what was, but what could be on this island. Today, he and Monique continue their passion: the creation of unique, handcrafted Tasmanian wines. It is recognised that what makes a good wine is purity of expression, intensity and persistence of flavour, as well as trueness to variety and style. Stefano Lubiana’s skilful winemaking and viticulture allows these qualities to be received. Biodynamics is one of the techniques used by this winery, which is a special kind of organic farming. It ensures the vines remain in tune with the rhythms of the seasons, bringing light and vitality to this vineyard. Stefano Lubiana harnesses the greatness of the island of Tasmania and its rare gifts of ancient soils, endless skies, and the maritime influences of a vast surrounding ocean.
