The time has come to start putting together the wines for our 2017 Australia Day Chardonnay Benchmark Tasting.
We will be serving the wines in three brackets of six wines, all will be served blind. The object isn't to make Lethbridge look good or make other wineries or regions look bad but to raise the profile of Chardonnay.
We at Lethbridge love Chardonnay, in 2015 Ray made three Chardonnay's including the first vintage of 'The Bartl', a Chardonnay grown exclusively at Lethbridge. Lemon pith, and citrus fruits drive the wine, this is one fo my favourite wines ever made by Ray. It will be interesting to see what the 2016 tastes like and what our guests think.
