Eldridge Estate 2021 PTG


Eldridge Estate winemaker David Lloyd has been doing it tough recently. Friends helped out in 2020 as Lloyd recovered from a stage 4 diagnosis of Burkitt Lymphoma to his current state of remission. This is one of his first releases from 2021 - a personal favourite of mine. Inspired by the Passetoutgrains blends of Burgundy - hence the name PTG - this Mornington Peninsula wine is a blend of gamay and pinot noir designed for enjoyment in its youth. It's vibrant, light and joyful with red fruits to the fore and can easily be enjoyed chilled with a picnic. Lovely stuff. $36.
