The “entry level” for the very excellent Hoddles Creek Estate….
Nuts and figs with peachy stone fruit. Exhausted match smoke and light SAO baked biscuit. Wet stones and a touch of straw: Dances lightly, there’s a lovely just-creamy fig, with slippery peach stone fruit and grapefruit. Handled with right amount of spice from oak. Far more in the trad Yarra Valley chardy spectrum, the texture is more refined than mon frere Gippsland. Easy drinking, but not simple.
Alc: 13.1% (label 12.8%)
