"Big and rich initially but wonderfully delicate and racy. This is the stuff to challenge white burgundy! So clean but reasonably profound too. Convincing chew on the end. GV. 16.5/20", Jancis Robinson, MW, jancisrobinson.com, 5th November 2018

Restrained and subtle nose but then unfurls flavours of honey and ripe pears. Considerable weight cut by refreshing acidity. Very refined and complete, with genuine length, this is comfortably a match for more expensive white Burgundy. Highly recommended. Now-2022

Over the last generation the growers in the Yarra have correctly selected Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as the most successful grapes here, already identified the best vineyard sites and are now making excellent wines from vines of decent age. No question, this is a global sweet spot for these two varieties, and young Franco d'Anna at Hoddles Creek is making some superb wines but selling them at very fair prices.
