Fanco's done it again!

Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir 2019

You'd be hard pressed to fined a better value Pinot than this!

“Nose in glass, and first impression is that this is a great vintage for HCE Pinot. Darker fruit profile, but with raspberry in there too, plenty of spice and perfume of dried rose, some lead pencil and cedar happening. It’s medium-bodied, savoury and fruit sweet, almost earthy, and packed with gravelly tannin and bright cherry acidity. The finish is long, spicy, dried herb and cherry-laden, beautiful tannin pushing it out. It puts me in mind of 2013 with its grip and deep fruit. It’s bloody outstanding.”

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Red berries and dark cherry dominate the nose, firm mid palate tannins lead to pleasing acidity on the back.

All fruit is hand-picked in the morning and immediately de-stemmed with no crushing. In tank the fruit will have a small addition of sulphur. Some batches were left to cold soak for approximately 4-5 days, whilst others started fermentation immediately. Natural and cultured yeasts were used on different ferments. Pigage and delastage were used for cap management. Some ferments will undergo post maceration, depending on the tannin structure and the style of the wine. On completion of fermentation the wine was gently pressed and transferred to 30% new, 30% one year old and the balance in two and three year old oak, After 11 months of barrel maturation, the wine was assembled and bottled without filtration or fining.

Franco’s at the top of his game producing cracking wines year in year out from an amazing site.

For those that haven’t had these wines before they represent some of the best value Pinot & Chardonnay you’ll find.

Hoddles Creek’s vineyards are in the cooler upper Yarra, the slopes of many of the sites are calf breaking.

The wines show a deft touch, balancing power and delicacy beautifully.
