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 Mietta Pinot Noir 2013

    At once powerful yet incredibly detailed and refined. Macerated cherries, pips and spice, jamon, dried herbs, quite mouth watering. Nothing out of place - the oak and 80% whole bunches woven into the fabric of this fuller bodied wine. Tannins like velvet, persistent and long.

    Lethbridge Mietta Pinot Noir 2013

    Whole bunches are a key part of the Mietta “style”, but they aren’t set in concrete. The 2009 Mietta used 100% whole bunches, 2010 (75%), 2011 (0%), 2012 (50%), and this 2013 used 80%. There’s no recipe because each year is handled according to its own demands; wine is so often at its best when it believes in itself, as opposed to beliefs being imposed on its self.

    This is a belter of a pinot noir. Sturdy and stern but mostly: highly distinctive. There’s nothing ‘samey’ about this. Game, ground coffee, leather, juicy black cherry, sprinklings of spice, charcuterie. One sip and you sink straight into a deep labyrinth of flavour. This is the kind of pinot noir that makes you fall in love with pinot noir.
