2017 Eldorado Rd 'Quasimodo' Beechworth Red Blend
Paul and Laura Dahlenburg have spent a career making wine and tending to the vineyards of others. In 2010 Eldorado Rd was born. Their vineyard is in the town of Eldorado (between Beechworth & Wangaratta). Paul has been the chief winemaker at Baileys for decades and he makes theses wines with his son, Ben.
The Quasimodo is a blend of Nero D'avola, Shiraz & Durif. It's an unusual blend, but it works. Here is the James Halliday review - "50/33/17% split, fermented separately then blended, each variety adding their strengths to the final wine. Juiciness and brightness of the nero d'Avola fruit really shines through, along with some meaty reductive characters adding a more savoury overlay. Tannins are ripe and neatly pitched, as is the medium-bodied palate and its overall immediate appeal".
