About The Wine

Franco d'Anna has added a new string to his bow here, with a delightful new Blanc de Blanc bubbly!

It's made from near-on 100% Pinot Blanc (with a splash of Chardonnay) - the only 'Blanc de Blancs' of its kind in the country. It comes from a low-yielding block on the Hoddles Creek estate, with 4 months on lees and a further 20 months in barrel adding texture and weight to what is strikingly pure and refreshing fruit.

Gary Walsh awarded 93 points to what is just a unique, delicious bubbly that is, as always with Hoddles Creek, superb value for money.

 

About Hoddles Creek Estate

Hoddles Creek lay a serious claim to being one of the best value producers in Australia. Led by the extremely hardworking winemaking guru Franco D’Anna, Hoddles craft wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular that seriously overdeliver at all price-points.

The wines are all crafted from fruit grown on their family owned vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley. A must try for Yarra Valley fans and bargain hunters alike!

The Wine Front

"Interesting style and flavour, but a good one. It’s dry and briny, pear and almond in flavour, fine bubbles, good expansion through the mouth, and a long dry finish, almost with a little spice, but certainly saline. Impressive. Drinks beautifully." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
