Hoddles Creek Pinot Blanc 2018

$24.00

All fruit is hand picked in the morning, destemmed and loading into the press. It is gently pressed (Pinot Blanc is already quite phenolic) into tank. We settle naturally for five days then rack dirty and turbid juice for fermentation. From here we let the wine do it’s own thing. Left on lees for 6 months then lightly filtered for bottled. No additions apart from sulphur.

ABOUT HODDLES CREEK:
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 Estate is located in the Upper Yarra, which is higher, cooler and more marginal than the lower Yarra, The vineyard is cropped at less than 2.5 tonnes per acre. Being in a marginal climate, requires extensive canopy management. Over the last decade we have been focusing on minimal chemical use in the vineyard. We are starting to see the benefits of health soils and vines with more balanced wines.
