Ripe and full on the nose. Stonefruits, matchstick, hint of oak and grilled nuts. There are some funky and lees notes too. The is full but structured enough to keep everything clean and fresh. It’s a stunning wine and shamelessly Bannockburn. Drink from now but if you can, wait until after 2020. This needs only a simple grilled fish dish and your attention.

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.


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.


The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
