Eldridge Estate PTG Gamay Pinot Noir 6pk 2021 (Allocation Only)
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 2021
60% Pinot Noir, 40% Gamay.
Cherry, raspberry, dried flowers and spice, with a little grilled meat. It’s juicy and spicy, a little bit meaty and savoury, a firm sort of graphite feel to tannin, balanced acidity, and a long spicy finish. Yum. Very good in 2021, with maybe a little extra weight and oomph.
