Wickhams Road Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015
Made by the guys at Hoddles Creek; the Wickhams Road wines are made with the same philosophy used with Hoddles Creek. They are single vineyard wines with the care and attention that has made Hoddles Creek such a success. The difference with Wickhams Road is that it has been sourced from trusted growers around Victoria. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
Should you buy these 2015 Wickhams Road Pinots, don’t rush into drinking them. Leave them alone for a while. Well, maybe try one, but give it some air first. Their price belies their quality and cellaring credentials, but comes as a result of their early release. Or something like that.
Such a young and barely formed wine, though you can see its potential. Raspberry, subtle floral perfume, light dusting of pepper and spice with some leaf litter far in the background. Light to medium bodied, bell clear acidity, fine powdery tannin gives it shape, and the finish is very clean, long and red fruited. Has great deal of charm, and delicacy. Will become a kicking-myself-I-should-have-bought-more wine in a handful of years.

Body and style. This is a wine to settle down with. Stone fruits and spice, preserved lemons and roasted nuts. Pears, ripe. Just enough of this, and just enough of that.
