Geelong

Our Price: $36.99 / bottle (RRP: $45.00 ) Case: 6 x 750ml

'It's by no means simple, the tannins are supple, the body compact, oak part of the equation but not dominating and the feeling this is special.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • 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.

    Nadeson's 2015 Estate Pinot is a blend of Moorabool Valley fruit and the more coastal focused Bellarine Peninsula. Crunchy, tangy whole-bunch enriched wine, that stands out for its complex aromas and engaging palate.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    All fruit was handpicked and fermented separately to keep the individual vineyard characters distinct. Each parcel was treated the same; wild yeast fermented with around 40% whole bunches. The wine was then matured for 10 months in 40% new French oak barriques. After rigorous tastings we blended the wines to create this wonderful Pinot Noir in the Lethbridge style.

    Sourced from the Moorabool Valley, Sweetland and Hillside Haven Vineyards. Plus the Bellarine Peninsula: Hat Rock and Suma Park.

    Alcohol - 12.8%

  • REVIEWS

    'Not that this is for guzzling but it has a thirst-quenching quality about it. It's the acidity and the abundance of juicy, tangy cherry fruit with whole-bunch qualities and it's overall freshness. It's by no means simple, the tannins are supple, the body compact, oak part of the equation but not dominating and the feeling this is special.'
