About The Wine

If you like your reds fresh, light and totally smashable, then this beauty from Eldredge Estate should be right at the top of your hit list.

Under the guidance of owner/winemaker David Lloyd, Eldredge has carved out a space as one of Australia's premier producers of Pinot and in particular, Gamay. The 'PTG' is the collision between these two much-loved varieties.

This is the wine David makes for immediate drinking. It doesn't have the complexity of the Estate Pinot Noir or Gamay, but it seriously makes up for it with drinkability.

It's bright and joyous yet spicy and savoury, and is just one of those instantly loveable reds that's near impossible to put down!

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.

Critic Reviews

95Points
Halliday Wine Companion

"A blend of 60% pinot noir, 40% gamay, it's the vinification that is intriguing and very successful. Called Carbo-Crush, the whole bunches are placed in a tank with no additions of any kind, the tank sealed and after a week a handful of bunches are removed and tasted - if there is an explosion of CO2, the bunches are destemmed and fermented dry (if no explosion the tank is resealed for a few more days). The bouquet is rich and complex, the palate likewise." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Such an easy wine to drink, but for such and easy wine to drink, it does have a fair bit of complexity and interest built in. Floral, juicy cherry, spice and meat. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively, but with some depth, a ‘mineral’ feel to the acidity, a light rasp of tannin, and a spicy meaty finish of fair length. Wonderful." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs
Do I have to order in dozens?

No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts?

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store?

No, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

Can I special order a wine you do not sell?

If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
