Hoddles Creek, 1er Pinot Noir, Yarra Valley, 2018

Winemaker Franco d'Anna’s commentary: "The 2018 1er Pinot Noir will go down as one of the classics, with lots of perfume and structure .The 1er Pinot Noir always comes from a block on our Top Paddock vineyard called ‘SRM’. This block faces West but runs down to the South. This is the only block which sees the inclusion of around 20-25% whole bunches in the ferment. I’m not looking for whole bunch characters in the wine but more what it does to the tannins. Normally it should make the wines finer and the tannins more pure".

Currently not that open on the nose. However it opens out magnificently on the palate, with a panoply of red fruit, savoury and mineral nuances. Tannins very subtle, but also a good thread of acidity. Really lasting finish. Best 2021-2027
