I liked it from first sniff... Complex. Composed. Cracking. My kind of Pinot Noir.
About The Wine
This is only the second ever release of this Hoddles Creek wine, and it's an absolute stunner.
It's a single block Pinot Noir from the super high density Pinot plantings on the Hoddles family vineyard, designed to sit alongside the Road Block and Syberia Chardonnays. Winemaker Franco D'Anna won't tell a soul what PSB stands for, and after you taste what's in the glass you won't care.
It's not to be released every year, but the 2018 vintage revealed a wine of outstanding quality. If you've fallen in love with Pinot Noir from this family over the years, this new wine will knock your socks off.
Only around 100 dozen were bottled in 2018 and they are going to fly. Jump on it while you can.
