These vines are getting to 20 years old and grown in rocky soils. Franco and the team have kicked another goal.
Hoddles Creek Estate, Pinot Blanc, Yarra Valley, 2017
Apple skin, sea spray, fresh melon, peaty whisky, chalk box and a kiss of lychee. Detailed, precise and linear palate of spiced baked apple, grilled nuts with just under ripe white stone fruit. There’s just enough flesh on the chalky bones to give some oomph before a long textural drying finish. Refined, elegant and great value summer time drinking.
