Lethbridge Pinot Noir 2016
"When making Pinot Noir I have always had a love of whole-bunch fermentation (using the entire bunch, including stalks). Doing so means not missing out on the full expression of the terroir. I think that is why our wines are always characterised by spice, tannin volume and drive. They need time to evolve and unpack to reach their full complexity and power and many of the wines that I made in the early 2000's are now in their drinking window. My hope is to create wines that are medium bodied but dense in concentration with tannins that feel like melting i to a soft cushion. Hopefully I have achieved some of that in this wine. I think so ;) - Ray"
