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.
The timing of budburst was consistent with long term average but with picking commencing on 20th February and completion by 22nd March it turned out to be a short compressed vintage. Rather than being hastened by hot weather the season seemed to be shortened due to there being fewer days of excessive heat.(photosynthesis slows and even halts altogether as temperatures rise and water loss increases.)
Overall, it was a solid year for the Moorabool Valley region, we missed the rainfall that was to our east and the heat that was to the north. Bannockburn experienced good rainfall early in the season then it was consistently dry throughout the harvest period. Fruitset and cropping levels of all varieties were well within the ideal range.
Most seasons we would say that either Pinot Noir or Shiraz is favoured but 2018 looks to be a year when both have fared well!
