Hoddles Creek, Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2020

Given 4-5 days cold soak, aged in thirds of new, first fill and older barrels. Soft tone. Very forward (in Burgundian terms, early maturing), with some of those undergrowth hints under the red cherry and heated red berry flavours. Opens out beautifully on the palate in a classic Pinot manner. Fine aromatics and splendid length. Now-2026

"Don’t be alarmed by the pale ruby colour – this is not at all wimpy. Instead, it’s a refined and lighter-framed rendition with layers of flavour. It has an almost whole-bunch character but winemaker Franco d’Anna destems the fruit. Still, expect flavours of earthy rhubarb and grated raw beetroot with a sappy freshness. Tangy, spritely acidity and fine tannins add to the pleasure of drinking." 95/100 Now-2030. Jane Faulkner, Wine Companion, Oct 2021
