Winery Details

    Eldridge Estate is one of those unique, truly special places where a site and the guiding personalities are in perfect harmony. David Lloyd and his (late) wife, Wendy, purchased the property in 1995, and set about making wines of near incomparable commitment to their terroir in Red Hill, Mornington. Only 3ha under vine in a special sloping, enclosed valley – these are cool, elegant and unadorned wines. Eldridge Estate specialise in the local kings, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but with a superb Gamay added – one of Australia’s finest.

Press Review

    Eldridge Estate Chardonnay 2018

    Two single site-specific chardonnays were produced in ‘18, a fine vintage for the variety. This, a barrel-fermented blend of two clones, the first of the duo. Beautifully proportioned. Mid-weighted. The nose an effortless meld of white fig, stone fruits and hazelnut, with a whiff of flint conferring gentle tension, rather than shrillness. Generous of flavour and yet far from a lair. The oak, well massaged into the fray. Maker David Lloyd is well versed in Burgundy and it shows. A mellifluous wine of precision and juicy length.

    Eldridge Estate Chardonnay 2018

    This is a generous offering with stonefruit, pineapple, cedarwood and woodsmoke flavours bursting through the palate. It has both a creaminess and a richness but it also feels fresh and lengthy.
