Lethbridge Wines grew from a friendship between Ray Nadeson, Maree Collis and Adrian Thomas. Back in the mid 1990’s we were busy establishing careers in science and medicine and shared a love of great wine which ultimately became quite an obsession. The afternoons sipping Burgundies were replaced by weekends searching for the perfect vineyard site and then by afternoons digging holes and planting vines. For two of us (Maree and Ray) the passion for wine drove us to a tree change, and in 2003 after 7 years of balancing careers in science and running a vineyard and winery, we made Lethbridge Wines our reison d'etre.
The Lethbridge Chardonnay is a wonderful expression of this noble white grape variety made from carefully selected handpicked fruit, which is fermented and matured in French oak. The wine displays complex, intense aromas of citrus, hazelnut, and gun flint. On the palate mineral flavours mingle with the firm structure and creamy texture to a finish that is long and elegant.
