Lethbridge Allegra Chardonnay 12pk 2017
*Available on indent from Lethbridge*
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 2017
50/50% P58/Dijon chardonnay clones, the vines planted in '81; hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, wild-fermented, matured in new French oak. Exceedingly powerful and complex. Needs to be chilled on a warm/hot day, but is quite something.
