Hoddles Creek, 1er Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2019

With a mad pastiche of an old-fashioned, Burgundian label, this is a splendid and complex PN, using about 20% whole bunch fermentation. Such a pretty scent: red berries tinged with coffee and herbs. Smooth, velvety even, and then just flowers on... Read More

Hoddles Creek, 1er Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2019

With a mad pastiche of an old-fashioned, Burgundian label, this is a splendid and complex PN, using about 20% whole bunch fermentation. Such a pretty scent: red berries tinged with coffee and herbs. Smooth, velvety even, and then just flowers on the palate, with strawberry and red cherry flavours. Subtle and classy – would impress Francophiles. Now-2027

A wine of remarkable value and world class quality – if you’re a lover of Pinot Noir then this is a must buy. This is Australian Pinot Noir at its very best”, Garry Walsh, The Wine Front.

Violets, mushrooms with a real undertow of something quite nuanced. Light tannins and admirably persistent. 17/20. Drink 2021-2025”, Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com, May 2021
