Wickhams Road, Pinot Noir, Gippsland, 2017 [Screwcap]

In Stock Now!

"Wickhams Road is a remarkable wine and it has more vitality and friskiness than a Cirque de Soleil troupe of acrobats. I could swear that there is some whole bunch fruit here, bearing in mind the herbaceous notes which enliven the aromatics, but the tech sheet and web info say no. Either way, this is a stunning expression of the Pinot Noir grape and it is bursting with cherry, plum and hedgerow glamour and I cannot wait to introduce several hundred people to it at Australia House at my wine trade launch of this Report. I trust that they will all pogo with enthusiasm when this mystical elixir hits their receptors", Matthew Jukes, 100 Best Australian Wines 2018/19.

"This medium-bodied pinot noir raised eyebrows with its plum colouring and ripe cherry and raspberry aromatics. Produced by Franco d'Anna in the Gippsland coastal region southeast of Melbourne, it pairs beautifully with meat", Will Lyons, The Sunday Times Magazine, 8th July 2018.

"Sweet, floral, slightly gamey nose with perhaps some whole-bunch influence. Nicely flirtatious. Pure and with character – not just fruity. GV. 16.5/20", Jancis Robinson, MW, jancisrobinson.com, 5th November 2018

Gippsland is an up-and-coming coastal region east and south of Melbourne. Soft plum hue. Open, forward Pinot character: juicy, punchy and crunchy raspberry fruit, already enticingly tinged with hints of that appealing savouriness which is so food friendly (think fowl, veal, mushrooms). Hugely successful and delicious. Now-2022

Since 2011 Franco d’Anna at Hoddles Creek has managed an eight hectare vineyard, with vines now 17 years old, planted solely to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Gippsland.
