Distinguished Langtons Classification. Bannockburn release a Chardonnay each year that accurately and faithfully reflects the merits of an exceptional terroir. This is far from easy, it is only achieved through dedication and resolve. The classic Bannockburn seashell characters are all her in good measure, as well as some interesting ginger and lemongrass, creme brulee, struck matchstick, roasted nuts and mealy influences, all beautifully integrated. Wonderful persistence and structure, the wine goes on and on, a lovely, lengthy, textural finish.
Bannockburn manage some of the finest Chardonnay vines in Australia, dry grown and over thirty years of age. Techniques employed to vinify the superlative fruit follow the traditions of Burgundy, everything is done with thought and care, never compromising on quality. Organic practices and extended maceration before a fastidious barrel selection achieve a wine that's exciting and complex. Parcels of dry grown fruit are whole bunch pressed, without any settling or additions, into a mix of barriques, puncheons and fermenters, vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeasts and rested for two years on sedimentery lees. Structured and powerful, rich with Burgundy styled, soil derived crustacea characters.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw green hues. Complex nose displaying chalky minerality, almond meal, grapefruit pith and a creamy biscuit character derived from extended lees contact. The palate is very long with a lovely texture and weight. A hint of creaminess from some malo-lactic involvement. The palate is full without being broad, tight without being austere.

About Bannockburn Wines
Stuart Hooper's uncompromising commitment to quality, regardless of cost, has placed Bannockburn at the forefront of re-establishing Geelong as an exceptional cool climate wine producing area
Bannockburn was established by Stuart Hooper in 1974. It was Hooper's passion to share the enjoyment of a bottle of red with friends and family, and his dream of producing wine from his own vineyard, that lead to the establishment of Bannockburn. His vision was to create a vineyard which would produce Australian wine of a quality to emulate the great wines of France, in particular the great Burgundies. Stuart had a purist, uncompromising approach to quality grape growing and winemaking. He had a strong belief in making wines which genuinely reflect the flavours of the vineyard. Although Stuart has since passed away, Bannockburn Vineyards remains in the Hooper family and his philosophy remains as the cornerstone behind all Bannockburn represents today. Bannockburn»
