Regardless of what you hear about these new fandangle Gamay producers in Australia, David Lloyd at Eldridge has been doing it better and longer than most (along with Sorrenberg). The style is always evolving and always improving in my eyes. He's pulling back on the ripeness and concentrating on producing a wine of terroir. It's lithe and bright with a complexing nature of forest floor and spicey tang. Ggive it a couple of years to settle down and form what it really can be. - Chris L

Details

I've had a long standing relationship with David Lloyd at Eldridge Estate. He's been a great winemaking mentor to me. I've learnt so many technical and scientific aspects of wine from him, but i guess that's what you'd come to expect from an ex-science teacher. I've done a string of vintages with him at his estate and he was also critical in the launch of my first vintage of CLO. He's a clever winemaker with a interesting sense of humour and I believe this transcends into his wines.

Eldridge Estate is a just over 3 hectares, which produces about 18t of grapes each year. This is micro, or better yet, nano wine production. So detailed and impressive.
