Hoddles Creek Estate Chardonnay 2017 & 2018


Gary Walsh ‘The Winefront’

Possibly we’ve been a bit slow getting reviews up here, but if you can’t buy with confidence from this producer in 2017, then there’s probably something wrong with you.

White peach, custard powder, more spritely stuff like lemon zest and green olive, perhaps a touch of spice. Light and fresh, some lactic/cheese flavour and stalks, with fine acidity and chalk dust texture, and a savoury finish of good length. It’s a good release, though perhaps a bit different in style this vintage.
