Wickhams Road, Pinot Noir, Gippsland, 2019

"Transparent garnet. Really rather seductive nose and, though there is the freshness of whole bunch, the whole is far from mean. Really rather sophisticated, complex and deep flavoured. Savoury finish and none of the beetroot character that can mar some non-European Pinots.Drink 2020–2024. 16.5/20, Jancis Robinson, MW, jancisrobinson.com, 8th May 202

Soft ruby tone. An appeal of this wine is that one doesn’t have to wait to drink it. There are vibrant red cherry and red berried fruit flavours, but also an incipient savouriness. So well-balanced, refreshing and more-ish - this would be delicious served lightly chilled with cold meats or salmon. Now-2023

This wine is made by Franco d’Anna of Hoddles Creek in the Yarra Valley. Since 2011 the family have also managed an eight hectare vineyard, with vines now 18 years old, planted solely to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Gippsland.  The wines from this cool, free draining site are sold under Franco’s Wickham Road label. Winemaking is determinedly non-interventionist: some whole bunches are put in the tank; all fermented with wild yeasts, without additions of enzymes or acid.
