About The Wine

Here's a stunning new inclusion in the Hoddles Creek Estate range, a single block Pinot Noir 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. This is from the super high density Pinot Noir plantings on the Hoddles family vineyard.

The 2017 vintage revealed a wine of outstanding quality. It's the first release and there won't be one every year. If you've fallen in love with Pinot Noir from this family over the years, here's a look at a new wine that will knock your socks off.

Only around 100 dozen were bottled in 2017 and they are going to fly. Jump on it while you can.

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!

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Straight into ‘stand back and admire’ territory. I’m tempted to call it a structural release because there’s certainly an emphasis there, though there’s also a healthy spread of fruit and spice flavour; this is a wine with a powerful presence, its lightness of colour at odds with the impact it achieves. Herb-age, spice-age, swings of sweetness and savouriness; it’s seriously impressive at every turn." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
