For this wine the Lethbridge team have travelled away from their home in Geelong down to the much cooler region of Henty for fruit to craft a deliciously exotic pinot gris. It opens with a beautiful pale salmon pink colour, thanks to plenty of skin contact, and then draws you in further with its enticing crab apple, white strawberry and musky aromas plus a touch of coriander seed in the background. What follows is a bright and fresh palate yet also has a rich mouthfeel – fruits are more savoury and earthy but that high acid line is the key ingredient. There’s a nice grip too as it meanders to a long and fine finish. Seriously delicious.
