About

For Yarra Valley Chardonnay fans, there’s no better time of year than the release of the Hoddles Creek Estate Chardonnay.

There have been reams of praise written about this producer with regard to their unbelievable value, even invoking Campbell Mattinson’s claim that “It’s wines like this that made me want to get into the wine game in the first place.”

With no 1er wines made from 2016, all of the best Chardonnay fruit from the Hoddles Creek vineyard finds its way into the Estate release, making it, again, one of the best value wines in the country.

It has already received 93+ points from Gary Walsh. Here, the balance and intensity of fruit, the craftsmanship of the winemaking, all remarkable. The wines are never available for long enough, unfortunately, so get in while the getting is good.

What It Tastes Like

“Ripe grapefruit, peach, almond nougat, fennel, a dusting of spice, slight struck match. Light and fresh, good burst of peach and citrus, crunch of limey acidity, some flinty texture, and a gently viscous and nougat tinged aftertaste. It has length and flavour, and feels open for play straight away, though showed even better the next day. Like this a lot. Touch and go for 94 points.” - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
