  • Country Australia
  • Region Victoria

  • Case size 6 / 75cl
  • Producer Lethbridge
  • 100% new French oak barriques. Matured on lees for 11 months in 40% new oak.

Not surprisingly, the site at Lethbridge was selected based on scientific principles such as soil type, degree days and other climatic indicators, yet after purchasing the property in Lethbridge they discovered an ancient old wooden fermentation vat in one of the old sheds. Further investigation revealed that site had originally been planted by Swiss vignerons in the 1870's before the scourge of phylloxera decimated the Geelong wine region. This story is compelling in the connection between traditional wisdom and modern science. After more than 20 years producing exceptional wine, Lethbridge Wines has achieved a stellar reputation, both within Australia and internationally, with their wines being poured in many of the world best restaurants. Not resting on their laurels Ray and Maree have continued to experiment and innovate and have developed a number of new distinct wine personalities encapsulated under the labels Between Five Bells, il Modo and Nadeson Collis.

Lethbridge Wines is a boutique producer specializing in highly terroir-driven wines from some of the best vineyards in Geelong, chosen after an exhaustive search in the mid-1990s. Owner-winemakers Ray Nadeson and Maree Collis started their careers as research scientists, then completed winemaking degrees before setting up Lethbridge. With total quantity capped at 3,000 cases, the focus is on quality and individuality, with a strong emphasis on capturing the local terroirs. Lethbridge has built up a cult following in Australia, despite being rarely seen outside Melbourne, and we are honoured to get the only overseas allocation.
