"It's hard to meet a keen wine drinker who either doesn't love or at least admire Nicholson River's Chardonnay - considered by many pundits to be one of Australia's greatest. It shows intensity and power, but with an emphasis on structure rather than fruity-tuitiness. And it's from a tiny little place on Victoria's east coast near Lakes Entrance. Crop levels are low here, and Bass Strait often gives this area a real blast, but Nicholson River happily soldiers on. Pinot Noir is well worth a second taste here, too." Ben Canaider
'Ken and Juliet Eckersley's Nicholson River is one of Victoria's most distinctive and beautiful wineries. Above a cliff on one side overlooking a Streeton-like view of the beautiful Nicholson River valley, with a broad panorama across the distant Gippsland Lakes and Bass Strait on the other side, the cellar door, an 1880 farmhouse, is the perfect place to chat with Ken, whose thoughtful, intelligent views on wine are refreshingly out of the mainstream. The wines made here cross a broad range of styles, with Chardonnay the most famous, Pinot Noir too, but the whole range of wines makes a unique tasting experience.' Ralph Kyte - Powell
