Lethbridge Mietta Pinot Noir 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 Wines Mietta Pinot Noir 2017
A very good pinot noir that has taken full advantage of the '17 vintage. 80% whole bunch vinification may not appeal to all, but I am more than happy with the forest floor and soaring spices. 100% new French oak was justified, and has been almost entirely absorbed by the fruit.
