Eldridge Estate PTG Gamay Pinot Noir 6pk 2020
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 PTG Gamay Pinot Noir 2020
Beautifully styled wine. Savoury and smoky but juicy with fruit too. Reduction put to good effect. Alive with spice, noticeably textural, threaded with ripe, twiggy, smoky tannin. It’s light and the savoury-smokiness sits high in the wine but it works and then some.
