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.
