Lethbridge Mietta Pinot Noir 2019


| /

Region: Geelong
Grapes: Pinot Noir
First Glance: Spicy, Savoury, Deep, Bold
Acclaim: 94pts

The Wine:
80% whole bunch vinification may not appeal to all, but I am more than happy with the forest floor and soaring spices. 100% new French oak was justified, and has been almost entirely absorbed by the fruit.

The Review:
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front - 94pts
"Cherry and raspberry, a lot of spice and perfume, kind of blue with new oak (if you take my meaning) though the fruit is pretty much up to the task, along with earth and a sort of boot polish on leather thing happening. It’s rich and bold, a little creamy, with dark cherry, raspberry liqueur, spice, porcini mushroom savouriness, and sooty/grainy tannin, plus a finish of good length and intensity, with a subtle sappy bitterness to close. It’s a bold wine, no doubt, that speaks well of Geelong, and I reckon it will be better again with a few more years in bottle."
