    There’s a darkness, an earthiness, to the Pinot Noir releases from HCE in 2019. But I like that, just like I like the rosy pretty red fruited ones too. The alcohol percentage for Hoddles Creek Pinot seems to be 13.2% every vintage, as a side note. 20% whole bunch in this one.

    Dark red fruit, spice, earth, mint and dried flowers. It’s medium-bodied, but dense and firm in tannin, cherries and dried herb mainly, a bit of gravel and bright sappy and ‘mineral’ feeling acidity. Lot’s of grip and oomph, though not heavy. Spice and perfume bobs up on a firm long finish. Needs a bit of extra time this vintage. Drink 2022 - 2030+
