Winery Details

    There are few tales as impressive as that of Lethbridge Wines. Ray Nadeson and Maree Collis were both successful medical researchers before succumbing to their desire to create a vineyard and winery in Geelong. They planted vines on their own rootstocks, built a straw-bale winery and house, and farmed the land according to biodynamic beliefs. Their wines are powerful, structured, pure and long-lived.

Press Review

    Lethbridge Allegra Chardonnay 2013

    Low yielding 35yo vines from Rebenberg Vineyard at Mt Duneed, whole-bunch pressed to neq French oak puncheons, wild yeast, mlf and left on lees for 15 months. Wow - what a wines. At once full-bodied, rich and complex, yet vibrantly fresh and tight. The palate is stunning - a gorgeous lemon ginger-infused clotted cream character, savoury and asuper length.

    Great to see a wine that delivers such a robust amount of flavor and perfume, without losing structure and drinkabilty. It’s a have your cake and eat it wine!
    Strange thing to say, but close your eyes, and you could almost imagine a Pinot Noir. There’s a good deal of high quality oak laying down sweet spiced biscuits and perfume over white cherries and plum, nectarine, and aniseed too. Medium weight, with juicy ruby red grapefruit acidity and flavour, distinctly flinty and delightful texture, offering a heady mix of restraint and power. Finish is long, spicy and crisply mouth-watering. Great Chardonnay, and I suspect, there’s more to come.
