'This is Matt Holmes’ first vintage with this site. It’s not a shy wine, but then it never has been.'

  • Volcanic topsoil, and mixed clays and sands over limestone are typical of the Bannockburn site, and so this wine is named De La Terre, meaning “of the earth”. De La Terre is a small, (sub one hectare) dry grown vineyard planted to 10,000 vines/ha that borders the famed Serré Vineyard. The planting density - still very rare in an Australian setting - results here in a natural yield of around 500 g per vine. In other words, about Grand Cru Burgundy levels per vine.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    10% whole bunch fermentation, indigenous yeast, approximately three weeks on skins. 12 months in French hogsheads (predominately Remond, 30% new), then racked to older puncheons. The best lots were blended, then bottled.

    TASTING NOTES

    The 2015 is incredibly fleshy and fat with aromas and flavours suggesting rhubarb, cola, roasted meat, exotic spice and some sappy, crushed herb notes with a firm, almost austere finish.
