About The Wine

With all the buzz around 2017 Yarra Valley, the Hoddles Creek 1er Pinot Noir release has been highly anticipated.

This immaculate vineyard in the Upper Yarra produces some of the region's finest fruit and in a vintage like 2017, Franco D'Anna's doesn't miss. This is one of the best releases in their history. A wine of remarkable value and world class quality.

The 2017 is long and exceptionally well balanced. Lower yields and increased demand will mean that this will be only available for a limited time.

With huge scores from the critics, if you're a lover of Pinot Noir then this is a must buy.  This is Australian Pinot Noir at its very best.

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, the Hoddles team craft wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in particular that seriously overdeliver at all price-points.

The wines are all made from fruit grown on their family vineyard in the Upper Yarra Valley.

A must try for Yarra Valley fans and bargain hunters alike!

Halliday Wine Companion

"This is the standard-bearer for Hoddles Creek's estate-grown pinot noirs. Bright crimson-purple hue of moderate depth; the perfumed bouquet has spice, hints of violets (unexpected so soon, but don't complain), cherry and plum, a gathering replayed on the stage of the palate which is wonderfully long." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"Single block pinot noir from one of Australia’s best pinot noir producers. From a good/great year. 25% whole bunches.  It’s a light, elegant wine, sinewy is the word, though it has the kind of insistence that would win it an election. This is a peacock’s tail of a wine if there ever was one, all the forces marshalled in order through the mainstay off the palate before launching the real and decisive attack through the finish. Drinking it is like watching the launch of a satellite, to keep the metaphors rolling; you count down through the palate and then watch it boom. Let’s just say, it has cashed in on the excellence of the vintage, and is remarkable both for its quality and for its value." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Spends 6 months longer in oak than the standard label, has approx 35% new oak with firm tannin, bright floral and red berry nose.

In the winery, this has the same treatment as the Estate Pinot Noir except for the inclusion of twenty per cent whole bunches. This makes the tannins a little more finer and gives structure to the wine for further aging. The wine spends eighteen months in cask. The wine is not filtered, not fined, or stabilized before bottling.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2030
Bottle Size : 750ml
