First sip and I thought: wow this’s good.
About The Wine
The 'Road Block' is the newest Chardonnay addition to the Hoddles Creek Estate stable. A single block wine from the steep East-facing portion of the family vineyard.
Their prowess with the variety is well known, rarely does Franco D'Anna miss with this variety. When he says this deserved its own bottling, you bet your boots there is a reason for it.
It's a smashing example of Upper Yarra Chardonnay. As Campbell Mattinson described it, "It’s a taut, complex style, wiry and long..."
The kind of wine that will reward the patient. Another top release from Franco & co.
