DESCRIPTION
  • The first Bannockburn vineyard was planted in 1974, with subsequent plantings through to the early 1980’s, making the vines some of the oldest in the Geelong region. A terroir consisting of meagre rainfall, low vigour soils and prevailing winds from the Southern Ocean, combined with close plantings results in a growing environment that naturally restricts yields, the determinants of Bannockburn's unique wine flavours and structures.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Primarily MV6 on own roots, also 114, 115 and 777, planted in 1976, 1997 and 2007. Batches of Pinot Noir from our different blocks were fermented with indigenous yeast, 40% whole bunch. Élevage for 12 months in primarily Troncais and Bertranges hogsheads (30% new), then racked and returned to older barriques.

    TASTING NOTES

    A moderately warm season punctuated by timely rain produced a more elegant style of Pinot Noir in 2015: lifted red fruits and savoury forest floor on the nose, bright acid and fine tannin on the palate. Immediately enjoyable and versatile with regard to food pairings, this wine will reward medium term ageing in cellar.

  • REVIEWS

    'Complex from go to whoa: earthy, autumn leaves, woodsy spices, dried blood orange peel, ferrous, iodine, stemmy yet sapid too. Sweet ripe tannins and a lot to consider, but has an astringent sour edge and it won't be to everyone's liking.'
