About The Wine

The D'Annas are huge champions of the Pinot Blanc variety for years. 

Their 1er Pinot Blanc is considered by many to be the benchmark for the variety in the country, but if you want to get a feel for their style with it, the Estate is the best place to start.

This comes from nine-year-old vines that were grafted over to the original Hoddles Creek Pinot Blanc clone.  It's a dainty wine of immense drinkability. The perfect thing to cool down with on a warm afternoon.

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!

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Skolable, refreshing, gently textured white of immediate appeal and distinct personality. This release is pretty zesty in acidity, a cheek puckering lashing of green apple, faintest marzipan and a big squeeze of grapefruit. It’s pretty yet delicately perfumed, an enticing start before the salivating main course to follow. Yum. It probably doesn’t do as much in the complexity stakes as 2016, but drinkability and refreshment factor is very high. Recommended." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

All fruit is hand picked in the morning, destemmed and loading into the press. It is gently pressed (Pinot Blanc is already quite phenolic) into tank. We settle naturally for five days then rack dirty and turbid juice for fermentation. From here we let the wine do it’s own thing. Left on lees for 6 months then lightly filtered for bottled. No additions apart from sulphur.
