Hoddles Creek Estate 1er Pinot Noir 2017
'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.'
