Description

The Bannockburn Estate Pinot comes from blocks planted in 1976, 1997 and 2007. All the fruit is fermented with indigenous yeast. Red fruits, forest floor on the nose. Great acid and fine tannin. The 2016 is classic Bannockburn Pinot and as such, it will age over the medium term happily.

Established in 1974 and from almost day one turning out quality wines. With Gary Farr as winemaker this rising star became an Australian icon. Subsequent winemakers have built on the legend of Bannockburn. Expanded vineyard holdings and added to the range and depth of quality.

Geelong

Within the GI of Geelong there is some distinctly different climates, diverse soil profiles and strong personalities. And it helps that there are quite a few producers making interesting and exciting wines here. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Shiraz all excel but in the right site there are plenty of other varieties that can do well.

Pinot Noir

This is the most elusive grape. It is relatively early ripening and extremely sensitive to terroir. Its perfect place on earth is the Cote d’Or in Burgundy. So haunting are great red Burgundy’s charms that growers everywhere try to emulate them. Pinot Noir is not just a one trick pony, it can make great reds, rosé, sparkling and even sweet wines, whites on occasion and I’ve tasted a decent fortified Pinot Noir too.
