Damn good wine. Length to burn too.
About The Wine
The iconic Eldridge Estate, spearheaded by David Lloyd, is one of the jewels in the crown of Mornington Peninsula.
Every berry that goes into this glorious Chardonnay is picked from their home estate. The fruit is treated with the utmost respect; pressed gently, fermented in the best French oak with a small amount of solids.
There's great intensity here. It's a Chardonnay with explosive power derived from the rich Mornington soil. It makes a statement about its home and its maker. It's a great thing to drink.
With 94 points from James Halliday and Campbell Mattinson , this is a great buy for those who want to get to know this great family owned estate.
About Eldridge Estate
When David and Wendy Lloyd purchased the picturesque Eldridge Estate on Red Hill in Mornington Peninsula in 1995, their mission was, "to produce hand crafted wines of distinction that are true to the grape variety and the flavours from our unique site."
It's fair to say that more than 20 years on, that dream has been fully realised. David runs the property with zero carbon footprint, continuously searching to optimise efficiency and the quality of his wines.
A deep dive into the right clonal material for the Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Gamay on his small block has seen the wines of David Lloyd become respected as among the finest of Mornington Peninsula.
