Bannockburn was established with a view to treating the vineyard as the engine of great wines, to maximise the potential of the site and to achieve a genuine expression of the vineyard from vintage to vintage. In essence to capture the terroir of the place. Bannockburn is never a reflection of market fashion or trends. An exquisite assemblage of Cabernet and Merlot in opulent Bordelais styling, with an exemplary integration of pencilled oak, artisanally dovetailed fruit, splendidly drying acids and compassionate, supporting tannins.
Bannockburn Vineyards was established by Stuart Hooper in 1974 when he planted a three hectare block of vines near the township of Bannockburn, 25 kilometres north of Geelong. Bannockburn has since grown in size and notoriety to have it's wines listed with Langton's and become one of the most highly regarded small winemaking estates within Australia. Bannockburn's endeavours to create a wine that speaks purely of the unique terrain is the key to the production of some of Victoria's most memorable vintages. This sounds romantic but is far from easy. The desired outcome is only achieved through rigourous viticultural management, a hint of obsession and a minimum of hoopla.
TASTING NOTES
The nose is classic aged Cabernet, leafy, cedar and cigar box characters. Reveals some savoury, leather notes and a hint of menthol over a very restrained palate. Tannins at the back indicate this wine is still quite youthful. A very long and restrained palate in a very classic style of Cabernet Merlot.

About Bannockburn Winery
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»
