- ABV 13.2%
- Closure: Stelvin
Brilliant pale straw colour with a distinctive greenish tinge to the outskirts and a watery hue. Elevated aromas of nectarine and grapefruit are subtlety overlaid by gun flint characters with hints of dried honey, citrus and spice also evident. Winemaker Franco D’Anna has done a great job counterpointing the wines fresh acidity against a mid palate that comes across as texturally full and round. Fresh nectarine and grapefruit flavours overlay subtle elements of citrus, dried honey and lightly toasted biscuity oak. Finishes elegant, fresh and flinty with a lingering aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
This has the typical energy, finesse and drive that makes Hoddles Creek have a ‘must buy' tag year in, year out. It has all the power needed to cruise through the next 10 years, with grapefruit, Granny Smith apple and stone fruit decorated with a necklace of bracing acidity. Drink by 2028.

Warmer season so picked a little earlier, looking for texture”, says smoky winemaker Franco D’Anna.
Juicy and peachy, spiced oatmeal, fennel and a little stuck match. It’s flavoursome with ripe pear and nectarine flavour, flinty texture, an appealing grapefruit cut to the acidity, and a long, well-defined chalky finish. Feel the quality of quiet confidence. It’s a great thing to drink even as a young wine, though a couple of years will help it along too. Drink 2019-2026+
