MARCO LUBIANA - Lucille Chardonnay 2020


"Hand picked, 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 hand picked and yields are kept low to maintain fruit concentration.Maximum of 6 bottles per customer as the production of this wine is small"
Marco Lubiana

I liked it straight away. It’s saline and nutty, ripe lemon, cut fennel, a quiet perfume. Bright and zesty, but with an almost milky oatmeal softness, fine chalk dust texture, ginger and pink grapefruit, brine and grilled nuts on a long cool finish. So stylish and lovely to drink, not forced. Beautiful. 95 points.

Tasmania, Australia


The Lubiana family have been making wine in Italy since the late 1800’s in the northwest of Italy (today Croatia), Andrea Lubiana left his family vineyard in Istria and moved his winemaking life from Northern Italy to South Australia for a new life after World War Two.

In South Australia, Andrea’s winemaking continued and was taken over by his son Mario Lubiana. Steve Lubiana was the next winemaker to continue the legacy and moved to Tasmania in 1990 to produce fine wines from cool climate varietals. After finishing high school I undertook a bachelor of Oenology and Viticulture at the University of Adelaide and graduated in 2018, during my time in Adelaide I worked for East End Cellars for two years where my palate was fine tuned to quality fine wines of France and Italy thanks to Michael Andrew Arthur and the team.
