Lethbridge Ménage a Noir Pinot Noir 12pk 2021
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.

I wonder if anyone here is old enough to remember the Menage aftershave advertisements, with the ladies’ hand moving inside a denim shirt, to feel a manly hairy chest?
Bright, perky, juicy, spicy, floral, delightful. It’s just on medium-bodied, and I’m thinking dried roses or rosehip, pomegranate, strawberry, light grainy almost graphite tannin, a little chicory bitterness, lots of crunch and fragrance on a firm sappy finish of good length. Heaps of spice too. What a wonderful vibrant expression of Pinot Noir.
