Tasting Note: Red cherries, crunchy red berries and violet notes with toast, and vanilla. 2020 was a cool year exemplifying a more lifted, elegant style of Pinot Noir, albeit with the Lethbridge touch. As the wine ages we expect the more earthy, savory notes characteristic of our style to develop and thrive in balance with the fruit.

Winemaking Notes: Sourced from four single vineyards in Geelong, two in the Moorabool Valley (Hillside Haven & Springbank) and two from the Bellarine (Hat Rock & Suma Park) All fruit was handpicked and fermented separately to keep the individual vineyard characters distinct. Each parcel was treated the same; wild yeast fermented with around 40% whole bunches. The wine was then matured for 10 months in 40% new French oak barriques. After rigorous tastings we blended the wines to create this wonderful Pinot Noir in the Lethbridge style.
