  • TASTING NOTE: This Pinot Gris is made in a complex, Alsatian style. It is beautiful and light salmon in colour with flavours of red apple skin, earthy citrus, and ginger spice. Its refreshing acidity is balanced with a slight pucker framing the fruit with a delightful texture.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: After being left on skins for between six and eight hours, the fruit was whole bunch pressed and then transferred to a mixture of stainless steel tanks and French foudre barrels without prior clarification, where fermentation by indigenous yeast took place on full solids. The wine was settled and matured in foudre on gross lees prior to blending and bottling.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Maree Collis and Ray Nadeson are not your average winemaker/owners of a boutique winery. Both were initially trained as research scientists and hold PhD degrees in chemistry and medicine, respectively. Mid career they made the decision to pursue their alternate passion and together with friend Adrian Thomas established Lethbridge Wines in 1996. Both Maree and Ray completed their winemaking degree at Charles Sturt University after which Ray concluded "winemaking is not really that different to science, both are creative and both involve 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration". Not surprisingly, the site at Lethbridge was selected based on scientific principles such as soil type, degree days and other climatic indicators, yet after purchasing the property in Lethbridge they discovered an ancient old wooden fermentation vat in one of the old sheds. Further investigation revealed that site had originally been planted by Swiss vignerons in the 1870's before the scourge of phylloxera decimated the Geelong wine region. This story is compelling in the connection between traditional wisdom and modern science. The focus of Lethbridge Wines is to produce wines that are textural, savoury and reveal characters true to variety and terroir.  The fruit, if not estate grown, is from selected special sites tended by passionate people. While best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Shiraz, Lethbridge also produce Riesling, Pinot Gris, Viognier, Merlot, Sangiovese and Gamay.
