About

Alert! Alert! Pinot bargain ahead! Lethbridge to me perfectly symbolises what modern Australian winemaking is all about. Not 100% locked down in one approach or another, but just crafting as naturally made wines as possible that are both delicious and, in owner/winemaker Ray Nadeson's words, "express the unique character of special places"._ Ray is kicking some serious goals with his Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs in particular (although he makes a mean cool climate Shiraz!), and his unique wines have really led the way for many other natural winemakers to follow. 'Menage a Noir' is Ray's 'entry level' Pinot, and as far as Pinot Noir goes it's about as good value as it gets at under 30 bucks. It's made from multiple parcels of fruit from various Geelong sub-regions and is designed to be simultaneously approachable and interesting. That it absolutely is! This is the most user-friendly and fruit forward release of this wine in a number of years and the perfect wine to get familiar with this standout Geelong producer.

What it Tastes Like

Bright cherry and earthen aromas. Some hints of truffle, spring time flowers - youthful exuberance brimming from the glass. More carbonic maceration this year gives it that pretty, fairy flossy, musk sticks and lipstick character which just screams "Drink me NOW". Sessionable and yet interesting - this release is going to make a bunch of friends.
