Hoddles Creek 1er Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia


Closure: Screw Cap
Great site, great year, great maker, vibrant Pinot! Another perfect example of just how far Aussie Pinot has come!


Franco manages to build a lot of power into his Pinots whilst still retaining delicacy. The 2017 is no exception, inviting perfume, loads, of earthy goodness and a great core of fruit. Just be patient! Grab a tube of 2017 1er Chardonnay or if you’re quick we scored a couple of cases of 2015 1er Chardonnay and enjoy!

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Notes from Franco:

Spends 6 months longer in oak than the standard label, has approx 35% new oak with firm tannin, bright floral and red berry nose.

In the winery, this has the same treatment as the Estate Pinot Noir except for the inclusion of twenty per cent whole bunches. This makes the tannins a little more finer and gives structure to the wine for further aging. The wine spends eighteen months in cask. The wine is not filtered, not fined, or stabilized before bottling.

94-95 Points

Large format oak for six months and then barriques. A winter in tank to finish. The spicy and fragrant playfulness is exaggerated with a portion of whole bunches used in the fermentation. The deep-set palate delivers an exceptionally long, smooth and supple layer of tannins, carrying long and deep into the finish. Stunning tannin quality here.
