Hoddles Creek Estate Pinot Noir 2006

From the cellar. Last reviewed by me, here, in June 2007. Time passes.

Plenty of fruit here still, in fact, it’s still kind of primary. Plump juicy strawberries, a little spice, vanilla cream laced with mint, hint of undergrowth and polished cedar. Medium bodied, fresh strawberry fruit of ample sweetness but with tannin that grips and pulls it nicely back into line, clean acidity, some old cedar and tobacco flavours on the periphery and a nice long finish with a good chomp of tannin. This review was written in about 59 seconds, though the wine will safely carry through another 5 or so years. Very nice wine. What a bargain. Something like 92 or 93 points.
