Lethbridge Estate Pinot Noir 12pk 2016
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 Estate Pinot Noir 2016
Adhering to Lethbridge's code of rich flavours, this is satsuma plum, orange rind, bing cherry and Asian five spice. The tannins are nicely astringent and the acidity, dutiful. Finishes sweet and cushiony.
