Eldridge Estate MV6 Pinot Noir 12pk 2017
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.
Eldridge Estate MV6 Pinot Noir 2017
100% MV6 fermented in a variable capacity fermenter, matured in French oak (25% new). Bright purple-crimson, it's a pinot all about length and aftertaste built on a delicate framework of fine tannins. Satsuma plum and dark cherry provide the bulk of the flavour spectrum.
