Hoddles Creek currently is the winery highest vineyard in the Upper Yarra at 270m and only site on volcanic red soils. These soils offer a wonderful contrast to other sites. The vineyard is planted in a slight arc and protected by indigenous trees on three sides. Its water holding capacity allows the site to be dry grown. This vineyard while presenting focus and clarity also offers a more open structure and fruit weight than the more linear style of Woori Yallock.
