About The Wine

This is only the second vintage release for Charlotte Dalton Hardy under her self-named label. She is a vagabond winemaker with a bucket load of experience and a deep love of all things vinous.

Eliza is a single vineyard Pinot Noir, made gently with no additions and released young into the world. Charlotte describes her as, "playful, graceful and wistful" which really sums her up nicely.

These limited wines are already getting quite a lot of attention for their remarkable style and sheer drinking pleasure. As Mike Bennie said of her first release, "Get in early on this gear..."

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Half MV6, half 777 clones. Whole bunch wild ferment, pressed to French oak, 90% new. That oak announces itself as the dominant aroma before the sour cherry and whole-bunch characters kick in. The palate is a different story, with a gentle but insistent spread of varietal flavours through its breadth and length completed by a tangy and textured finish." - Steven Creber (Halliday Wine Companion)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Broderick vineyard – Basket Range. Whole bunch ferment, no punch downs, plunges, pump overs - just left to be. Pressed to new French oak to mellow through winter and bottled in October.

Eliza is playful, graceful and wistful. She frolics in the forest and loves nothing more than foraging for mushrooms and other botanical delights. Eliza has many friends and can often be found with them splashing gleefully under the local waterfall, or dancing a merry gig beneath the moonlight, all the while feasting on her specialty – cherry pie. Eliza will fill you with delight and fascination.
