Eldridge Estate PTG 2016

Enjoyment factor is cranked high here. It's easy to see why this sells out in quick time every year.

I bought a couple of bottles when I popped in to the Cellar Door a few months ago - a great little place. If you manage to see David Lloyd around, be sure to have a chat. His passion is infectious.

The Pinot and Gamay that are blended here are not too dissimilar to what you will find in his single varietals. Bargain factor really. All fruit is estate grown.

Ideal for the warm climate or just a lazy kick back drink, I had this sitting in the fridge - much like a Rosé really. Bloody delish when chilled.

Bright in the glass, a pretty whiff of dried red flowers greets you. Plump berries are flanked by a spice rub and dried herbs. Oak char washes in late. I'm just happy for this to wash down my throat and keep it lubricated. Classy stuff.

Drink now to three years.
