Distinguished Langtons Classification. One of Australia's finest Pinot Noir, from low yielding vineyards on the maritime influenced terroirs near Geelong, by a winemaker wholly committed to Burgundian vinification techniques. Aromatic with dark cherry and spicy vanilla oak, a velvety palate of pastoral and plum. A wine of concentration, power and structure, with unmistakable varietal charm, more muscular and rich than it's euro antecedants, exhibiting piquant stalkyness as well as a Bourgogne gameyness, rarely found in Australian Pinot.
French influences abound at Bannockburn, where the experience has contributed richly to the style of Pinot Noir. Nineteen hectares of vine are mostly dense planted on low fertility clay based soils beside the Moorabool River where yields are very low. Ripening is cool and late. Pinot Noir grapes are whole bunch fermented by wild indigenous yeasts in four tonnes open fermenters, saturated with CO2 and sealed. After ten days, batches are treated to a daily pigeage over four weeks of ferment. Upon completion, musts are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new oak hogsheads for a year, followed by rack and returned to older barriques for a further eight months, to be bottled without fining or filtration.
TASTING NOTES
Ruby red colour, a wine of brilliance and clarity. Lifted nose with earthy forest notes and rhubarb, five spice and toasted oak. Characters carry through to the palate, which is of medium weight - fresh, light ethereal yet with good flavour intensity. Great balance and mouthfeel, as the palate is still quite youthful and restrained, silky textured and elegantly structured. A long, smooth, fine tannin finish.

More 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»
