Halliday Winery Review

Lethbridge was founded by scientists Ray Nadeson, Maree Collis and Adrian Thomas. In RayÕs words,ÔOur belief is that the best wines express the unique character of special placesÕ. As well as understanding the importance of terroir, the partners have built a unique strawbale winery, designed to recreate the controlled environment of cellars and caves in Europe. Winemaking is no less ecological: hand-picking, indigenous-yeast fermentation, small open fermenters, pigeage (foot-stomping) and minimal handling of the wines throughout the maturation process are all part and parcel of the highly successful Lethbridge approach. Ray also has a distinctive approach to full-blown chardonnay and pinot noir.
