Lethbridge Ménage a Noir 2013

I think pinot noir from parts of the Geelong region can have an “x factor” that others lack.  Perhaps it’s the outcrops of limestone subsoils, the plots of volcanic soils, the region’s long history with the grape, the low rainfall or perhaps it’s just me.  Lethbridge are a very good producer located just outside of Bannockburn (well, outside Lethbridge actually, but you get the point).  This pinot noir is a sinewy rendition of the grape.  Its aromatics remind of bacon, meat, earth, blood, old cedar and smoke.  The palate has balanced, relatively full bodied in expression, leaving you wanting that bit more.  Enjoyable drinking.  Good
