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 Pinot Gris 2018

    “From Henty, Victoria, an excursion for Lethbridge from Geelong. It sees eight different parcels in the mix, all naturally fermented, all in oak barrels, but with skin ferments at varying time spans and other things lending character and complexity. Lots of detail, as is often the Lethbridge way. “The skin contact is a very important part of making gris, otherwise you don’t get texture, and I am looking for spice and mushroomy character, more interest than just nashi pear, let’s say”, says winemaker Ray Nadeson as we take a drag on the wine together.

    Blushing in the glass in a pink-salmon kind of way. Scents of brown pear, truffle, bread dough and light floral notes. The palate is amazing – slippery then finishes with light puckering dryness. Complexity, detail, and length are calling cards. One of the more complex gris you’ll see, and delivers high drinkability. Total charm.”
