Bannockburn Riesling 2018 Review

" This has more colour than most 2018s at this stage and the bouquet is toasty, nutty, spicy, nougat-like, full and rich, all of which suggests barrel influence. In the mouth, it begins with same sweetness and rich flavour, opening out into a generously-flavoured, spicy wine with softness, roundness and lots of class. It's a left-field style but superb. A stunning wine, if not a typical Aussie riesling. 95pts."

Bannockburn Shiraz 2015 Review

"Dark and serious with spice, meat and soupy herb notes littered through berried fruit. It's a complex show...95 pts."

Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2016 Review

" This is wonderful in its savoury characters, it smells twiggy and like dried leaves, shows wiffs of game meat and pepper, a barely there dried cranberry and ripe cherry scent. The palate is more of the same, clove and toast, twigs and dried but pleasantly sour fruits, quite a bit of concentration here but a suppleness and very even flow. I found this wine very charming, distinct in its non-fruit characters and wonderful in its volume of perfume and flavour while retaining a sense of elegance. A compelling drink. 94 points.”
