About

Pinot Meunier has an interesting history in Dr. Ray Nadeson’s part of the world. Though made famous in Champagne, Pinot Meunier (known locally as Miller’s Burgundy in Geelong and the Grampians) was used to make red table wines as far back as the mid-1800’s, long before its genetic ancestor, Pinot Noir, became the powerhouse of popularity it is today.

As with all Lethbridge wines, Ray’s take on Pinot Meunier is a minimalistic one. The fruit is destemmed then foot stomped daily for one week. The grapes are then pressed straight to barrel, lees and all, to maintain the natural texture and complexity of the wine.

The 2014 impressed the pants off Campbell Mattinson. In his 94 point review, Mattinson cries , “Straight out of the blocks, it’s a ripper. Where’s the order form, I need some of this.” After tasting it with Ray, we couldn’t agree more.

This wine is as classy as it is interesting, a pairing that is not easy to find.

What It Tastes Like

“Straight out of the blocks, it’s a ripper. Where’s the order form, I need some of this. Fragrant, polished, classy and full of nut-infused dark cherried fruit. A minerally, smoky, undergrowthy edge adds intrigue. Quality and a point of difference in one.” - Campbell Mattinson
