HODDLES CREEK Wickhams Road Pinot Noir, Gippsland 2018

<p>Gippsland Pinot Noir from Franco d’Anna. His sold out 1er Pinot entered Langton's Classification VII last year and his second tier wines sold out in record time. Wickhams Road is his value label that produces what Gary Walsh describes as 'a gift to Pinot Noir drinkers.' This is simply good drinking Pinot.</p> <p>As this is from Gippsland, you can expect a more fruit-forward Pinot. But there is also complexity, a savoury finish and really good acid making it such a drinkable drop. Before we go too far, let’s not for a minute compare this wine with the greats of Gippsland. It’s simply not one of those wines. It’s for drinking and enjoying now.</p>

Region Gippsland

Gippsland is named after a former Governor of Victoria. Considered both a wine region and a zone, Gippsland extends from just east of Melbourne through to the southern NSW border. Vines were originally planted as early as the 19th century however the modern revival of the region’s viticulture did not occur until the 1970’s. An enormous geographical region – similar in size to Belgium, it is comprised of coastal plains and predominantly south-facing slopes of the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. The region is divided into three geographical areas, South, East and West. South Gippsland located about 100 km east of Melbourne, is a true cool climate area. Significant maritime influence ensures it is the wettest, coolest and windiest sub-region, providing ideal conditions for growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. East Gippsland has a more Mediterranean style climate, with West Gippsland the driest and warmest area of the three. Soil compositions vary across the region from silty loams

East Gippsland has a more Mediterranean style climate, with West Gippsland the driest and warmest area of the three. Soil compositions vary across the region from silty loams over sedimentary and volcanic derived rock in the coastal regions to weathered granitic and volcanic soils in the foothills. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are the principal varieties. A region dominated by small family run estates, Gippsland has garnered a reputation over the years particularly for fine Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
