Why do we love this wine?

If you are a connoisseur of Mornington Peninsula wines, you will undoubtedly know all about Eldridge Estate, a boutique producer operating in Red Hill. David Lloyd runs the whole show there and produces some exceptional wines including pinot noir, chardonnay and gamay.

In contrast to his usual practice of using only fruit from the estate, David sourced a bit of chardonnay in 2017 from mates at Yrsa’s Vineyard down the road to counteract a dramatic crop reduction at Eldridge that vintage. What resulted from this is a wine that comfortably sits on the top shelf with all of his others. It holds a bit more colour and concentration than his regular array of chardy’s, perhaps due to the clonal selection (as James Halliday has attested). Rather than attempt to outdo the wine wordsmiths that express these kinds of things for a living, I’ll leave it to the review below from Halliday to describe this gorgeous wine. Have a read...
