Rich and fruity

Lethbridge Wines Ménage à Noir Pinot Noir 2023, Geelong, AUD $38

Lethbridge Wines is just north of Geelong in the Moorabool Valley, not far from Bannockburn.

Quite a deep colour, rich red with a good tint of purple. Rich ripe black cherry aroma and flavour with a eucalyptus overtone. The wine has intensity of fruit flavour and good structure, thanks to abundant tannins. Wood spice and loganberry flavours: a bold and ballsy pinot with a good intensity and persistence. (Screwcap)
