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.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
