Single Vineyard Pack
We have put together a limited edition 6-pack showcasing our new release Single Vineyard wines plus a few older vintages for comparison. The 2015 wines included in this pack are the first vintage from returning winemaker Matt Holmes and we couldn't be more pleased with their quality and expression of site.
These packs will feature the following selection of Bannockburn wines:
- The Wines
- 2011 SRH Chardonnay
- 2016 SRH Chardonnay
- 2013 Serré Pinot Noir
- 2016 Serré Pinot Noir
- 2015 De La Terre Pinot Noir
- 2015 De La Roche Shiraz
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.
