Family Lunch Pack
We have your family lunch wines sorted with this selection from Bannockburn. Showcasing the breadth of varietals that we grow at our vineyards, from the textural, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc to the lifted red fruit and savoury, forest floor intensity of the Pinot Noir. This pack will keep everyone happy with a wine to suit every taste and a wide range of food pairings.
We had reasonable rain across winter and so the soils warmed up slowly which led to normal timing for budburst. Fruit-set and cropping levels (especially in Pinot Noir, which had an average bunch weight of 65g) were reduced by some poor weather experienced during flowering. The season warmed up at Christmas and continued through Jan/Feb which resulted in our commencement and completion dates being very similar days to vintage 2018 ( ...with one excessively hot weekend forcing us to pause for a few days). So another short, compressed harvest period at Bannockburn.
Despite the lack of rainfall during early 2019, the vines managed to hold on to a good amount of leaf canopy and so built up root mass and energy stores post-harvest.
At this early stage I am very pleased with quality in almost every regard, with some subtle changes to winemaking producing promising results.
