Hoddles Creek, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2018

11 months in a mix of 30% new, 30% second fill and the rest older barrels. Intense strawberry perfume with the merest whiff of oak. Juicy red and black berry and cherry compôte, displaying marvellous aromatics for a wine at this price. Supple tannins. Classic Pinot character, just developing nice secondary hints, honestly comparable to much grander wine from Burgundy. Now-2024

"When you have a vineyard site as good as Hoddles Creek Estate, and lavish care on it as well as ever, the result is preordained. This is an elegant, spice-infused wine with tannins providing the boundary fence, fruit filling the centre. The length and balance can't be faulted, 95/100", James Halliday's 2019 Top 100 Reds Under $25.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
