TASTE
In the mid-19th century, Pinot Meunier was more important in Victoria than its progenitor Pinot Noir. Keeping the tradition alive is this wonderfully aromatic example, blending raspberry and wild strawberry fruit with herbal and floral nuances. The palate is delicate but with no lack of intensity or length. In all, a completely winsome reminder of how well this grape can perform in this location.

PRODUCER

Lethbridge Wines is a boutique producer specializing in highly terroir- driven wines from some of the best vineyards in Geelong, chosen after an exhaustive search in the mid-1990s. With total quantity capped at 5,000 cases, the focus is on quality and individuality, and environmental sustainability is also key: Lethbridge’s own vineyard is farmed biodynamically, and the winery design is minimal-impact, requiring no heating or cooling. Lethbridge is garnering critical acclaim and a cult following in Australia, and Berkmann is honoured to be their first importer worldwide.

VINEYARD
Sourced from the cool southwest of Victoria, the Pinot Meunier grapes were hand-picked in the second week of March.

WINERY
The hand-picked fruit was fully destemmed before being cold soaked for a week. Wild fermentation took place over another week in 500-litre open vats, with gentle plunging each day. The temperature peaked at 30oC. The wine was then pressed straight to French oak barrels for malolactic and ageing on lees, before being bottled in January 2015.
