TASTING NOTES
This Pinot displays a gorgeous, subtle bouquet of cherry, raspberry, flowers and fresh leaves, which leads into a poised, beautifully textured, complex palate. Seamless and delicate yet with great underlying persistence and length, this is a masterclass in Pinot Noir winemaking.

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
This wine is from the biodynamically farmed estate vineyard, which was planted in 1996 to various clones including MV6, 114, 115 and 777. All the blocks were picked separately, by hand.

WINERY
The fruit was 40% crushed and destemmed, with 60% remaining as whole bunches, then transferred to 1000-litre open vats. There was a pre-fermentation maceration for 7-10 days until the natural yeast started work. The fermentation took ten days, with temperature peaking at 33oC, and once daily pigeage for extraction. After six days’ post-ferment skin contact, the wine was pressed to French oak barrels (60% new) for malolactic and twelve months’ maturation. All blocks were kept separate until being blended just before bottling unfiltered.
