November 2021 Winefront reviews - Campbell Mattinson

Bannockburn Riesling 2021
'I love the texture of this. It keeps the race going but there’s a gentle hug as it passes along. Citrus, slate, lemon sorbet, green apple and smoked herb notes. It feels and tastes sophisticated. It’s dry and tight through the finish; it’s good now but it will develop nicely over the medium term. This was aged in oak but there are no overt oak flavours to be found; texture though, that’s another (positive) thing.' 93 points, November 2021.

Bannockburn Sauvignon Blanc 2018
'As far as I know this is current which means that it’s released as a three-nearly-four-year-old. It’s a juicy, generous white wine on the one hand and s smoky and complex one on the other. It tastes of grapefruit and meal, tropical fruit and hay, with sweet pea-like notes humming in the background. It tastes both varietal and distinctively itself. The velvety flow of complex-but-juicy fruit flavour here is lovely.' 92 points, November 2021.

Bannockburn Shiraz 2018
'Yes. Very good release. Right in the zone. Peppered cherries, red and black, with woodsmoke and herbs. Bacon-like oak, totally in synch with the flavour profile of the wine. You get the feeling that these Bannockburn wines have re-found their equilibrium. This is fresh, complex, savoury and well-fruited. It’s an excellent combination of traits.' 93 points, November 2021.

Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2019 Review

" Medium red colour with tints of purple and black, the bouquet char-oaky, smoky, stemmy and bunchy, and more appealing than that may sound. The palate is rich and full, with loads of detail and nuance, heaps of interest, the palate full and rich, round and very fruit-sweet at the core, with Campari, balsamic herbs - the full whole-bunch deal. Long finish too. A satisfying pinot. Good value too." Drink 2021 - 2019. 96pts."
