  • TASTING NOTE: "It’s so calm and seductive, and while it shows a little more creamy spicy biscuit oak than usual, or so I think, it’s nothing overt. Aside that, red cherry and red berries, spice, mint and floral top notes, with silky fine tannin, though they offer a distinct ‘mineral’ character, with a crushed stone sort of thing, and some more earthy/savoury flavours. Not at all sweet, maybe even a little bony, though the red fruit is ample. The finish is very long, a tight tannin dusting as it goes. Probably the best vintage of 1er Pinot since 2015." Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
  • ABOUT THE WINE: "The Pinot Noir for this wine comes from our Top Paddock Vineyard. There are 28 rows of pinot planted in this block, which is West facing and sloping to the South. The fact that it slopes down to the South is really important as it enables us to include about 25% whole clusters to the fermentation. South facing blocks tend to be a bit cooler, and ripening takes a little longer hence the stalks have a chance to regain ripeness without imparting any green flavours on the wine. Pinot Noir from this block has been treated separately since 2005, when we highlighted that the rows produce slightly different fruit than the remainder of the vineyard. With the vineyard in balance, we simply shoot thin around the crown and take off any multiple shoots. The vines would normally crop about 1.3 kilograms per vine. In the winery, this has the same treatment as the Estate Pinot Noir except for the inclusion of twenty five per cent whole bunches. This makes the tannins a little more finer and gives structure to the wine for further ageing. The wine spends eighteen months in cask. The wine is not filtered, not fined, or stabilized before bottling." Franco D'Anna
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Hoddles Creek Estate was established in 1997 when the D'Anna family decided to establish a vineyard on the property that has been in the family since 1960. The vineyard sits astride Gembrook road and adjacent Hoddles Creek. Its steeply sloping blocks prohibit mechanical harvesting, with both vineyards being hand pruned and harvested. All of their wines, which are single vineyard, estate grown, are made in their 300 tonne winery, constructed for the 2003 vintage. The split-level winery has a barrel store located three meters underground. Hoddles Creek Estate is planted with 10ha of Pinot Noir (five clones), 6 ha of Chardonnay, 1ha each of Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, and 1.5ha of Pinot Gris.
