About The Wine
Dr. Ray Nadeson is a master craftsman of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (although he also makes a mean cool climate Shiraz!). His unique wines have led the way for many other natural winemakers to follow, with technique and precision leading his low-intervention philosophical approach.
'Menage a Noir' is Ray's 'entry-level' Pinot, and as far as Pinot Noir goes it's about as good as it gets at this price. It's made from multiple parcels of fruit from various Geelong sub-regions and is designed to be simultaneously approachable and interesting.
This is another extremely user-friendly release - the move toward more fruit-forward, bright and friendly style of Pinot Noir clearly doing wonders for the label. This is the perfect wine to get familiar with this standout Geelong producer.
About Lethbridge Wines
Lethbridge is living proof that those pie-in-the-sky ideas you have with friends over a glass of wine can come true (if you are as talented and hard working as Ray Nadeson, Maree Collis and Adrian Thomas).
This operation is considered one of the leading lights in the 'natural wine' movement, being founded on the idea that great fruit should speak for itself.
The vineyards are grown with an organic philosophy and as little as possible is added to the wines through the winemaking process. The wines have a certain style to them, but most of all, the song of Geelong sings through the whole range.
They are fascinating and delicious all at once.
