Eldridge Estate – 10/03/2013

Chardonnay 2010
Bright citrus melon peach, clean leesy ripeness. Tight dense ripeness, not warm or heavy. No malo character, heavier texture. Varietal.

DRL 2011 (50/50 Pinot gamay)
Quite pale in colour. Nice slightly spicy red fruit nose. Quite savoury in character, spice rosemary and bright red fruits. All on the front food wine, pleasant and most importantly different.

Gamay 2011
A little darker in fruit, a sharpness on the shoes, pomegranate turnips, medicine(?). Full yet fresh and bright, nice extension of fruit on the palate, round soft tannins, plenty of spice to it.

Pinot Noir 2010
Nice dark fruit with some good mature stalk elements. Very tight on the palate, focused linear, a product of location, focused and fresh, dense fruit.

MV6 Pinot Noir 2010
Soft pure quiet, focused dark cherry notes. Dark soft round but building on the palate, very late dark sweet spice savoury edge. Tight acids.
