Hoddles Creek Estate was established in 1997 when the D'Anna family decided to establish a vineyard on the property that has been in the family since 1960. The vineyard sits astride Gembrook road and adjacent Hoddles Creek. Its steeply sloping blocks prohibit mechanical harvesting, with both vineyards being hand pruned and harvested. All our wines, which are single vineyard, estate grown, are made in our 300 tonne winery, constructed for the 2003 vintage. The split-level winery has a barrel store located three meters underground. Hoddles Creek Estate is planted with 10ha of pinot noir (five clones), 6 ha of chardonnay, 1ha each of sauvignon blanc, merlot and cabernet sauvignon, and 1.5ha of pinot gris.

Hoddles Creek probably about the best $20 you can spend on Australian Pinot Noir. It’s almost ludicrous. It’s rosy, slightly peppery, red fruited, almost minerally, with spicy biscuit oak gently folded in. Light to medium bodied, fine sweep of emery board tannin, fine acidity, delicate flavour, bright and fine boned, with no annoying sweet and sour flavours, and a firm insistently tannic finish. Serious Pinot satisfaction here. Tasted: April 2017; Alcohol: 13.2%; Price: $22; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018-2026; Rating: 93 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

A pretty and fragrant pinot of lifted rose hip and red cherry and strawberry fruit. It’s bright and tangy, celebrating the crunch of Upper Yarra acidity and a fine-ground, mineral tannin profile of confidence and integration. A splendid result for Hoddles Creek’s toughest vintage yet, lifted by the inclusion of their 1er fruit. Rating: 93 Points; Tyson Stelzer; Wines of the Year 2017

Medium to deep red/purple, excellent colour. The bouquet is meaty, charcuterie and dark cherry-like, the palate similar with intense, refined, penetrative flavour and good length. Lovely pinot and great value. Rating: 92 Points; Huon Hooke; Real Review
