Lethbridge Allegra Chardonnay 12pk 2015
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.
Lethbridge Allegra Chardonnay 2015
Peach, butter, grilled nuts, oak is spicy and laid on pretty thick, yet cossetted by the fruit. Full bodied, fresh peach sizzled in butter, spice and smoke, glossy and flinty at once, lime and firm acidity pushes out the finish. A little warmth, but generosity and flavour wins the day.
