The 2023 vintage is the first year the fruit was sourced almost entirely from the estate vineyard in the upper Yarra Valley, with just 15% of the blend coming from small parcels in Yarra Glen and Kangaroo Ground. The ferment included about 20% whole bunches, lending spice and fine tannin to the wine. After 20 days on skins, the wine was pressed to mostly old French barriques (5% new) for a short maturation.

Reviews

“Strawberry, red cherry, a little spice, tea leaf and mint. It’s light, all strawberry with a dusting of spice, a lick of grainy tannin, and a finish of solid length. A little green mango on the finish? Not complex, but refreshing and good to drink.”
90 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
“Good depth of medium-deep bright red-purple; aromas of dark and red cherries, sweet and fragrant, raspberry and dried strawberry tones as well, with a gentle dried-herb/underbrush overlay. In the mouth, there is remarkable intensity of flavour and also tannin structure that places it well above its station. Brilliant value.”

“To borrow a line from Mr Magoo, 'Oh, Franco, you've done it again!' I'm referring to the insanely good-for-the-money pinots that Hoddles Creek excels at. This is the first Wickhams Road Yarra where the majority of the fruit comes from Hoddles Creek. A super-bright ruby red, this nose is redolent with small red fruits while the palate is balanced, silky smooth and long. Delish!”
