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.
Cherry, pencils and a lovely dried flower fragrance about it. It’s medium bodied, kind of minerally and fine, with fine grained tannin, a supple and fine feel, just a hint of dried herb, and a savoury finish that’s refined, dry and very long. Svelte and delightful. Tasted: Jan 2018; Alcohol: 13.5%; Price: $60; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2026+; Rated: 94 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
