One of the pair of underpriced premium Chardonnays produced by Franco D’Anna and the team at Hoddles Creek Estate. Mendoza clone chardonnay. Single block. Coldest block at the estate. No fining, additions or filtration.
Hoddles Creek Estate, Road Block, Chardonnay, Yarra Valley, 2018
Creaminess of nougat and light fig with light yellow stone fruit. Bakers spices over lemon/lime rind with the coolness of white marble. Impeccable presence and body. This carries itself with such grace and purity. Richness without corpulence. Limey citrus length that seems endless. A simply beautiful Chardonnay.
Rating: 19/20 (95/100)
