Our Wines

All Bannockburn wines are made from fruit grown on our long-established estate in the Geelong wine region. The meticulously tended vineyards and the hands-off approach by winemaker Matt Holmes result in wines that are exciting, complex and uniquely Bannockburn.

“Gentle inputs and minimal additions are definitely the goal”

Matt Holmes

Our range include varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay and a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend. We also make several celebrated single-vineyard wines.

Mixed Pack Selections

We have put together some various mixed packs to help communicate our story via the lens of our various vineyards and grape varieties.

2023 Vintage

The 2023 growing season started off cold and wet. For the first time since 2011 our dam was full, and in fact overflowed for most of October and November (rainfall for the calendar year of 2022 was 800mm). Budburst was slightly behind average timing, but crops were down significantly: the bunch counts were low in the first place, we had a mild frost in September and the wet weather finally caught up with us via downy mildew. The rain stopped at the end of December.

The overall heat accumulation was the same (1338 Growing Degree Days) as 2021, both seasons on the slightly cooler side of average but differing in that the heat for 2023 was more toward the second half of the season. Veraison occurred in February and then we picked Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling in March, and Shiraz and Cabernet/Merlot in the first week of April. The picking weather was pleasant and the fruit arrived at the winery in very good condition.

While quantity was down (especially in Pinot Noir) quality was good: fresh acidity, concentration, colour, tannin and steady fermentations have us looking forward to bottling, and seemingly warmer and drier seasons as El Niño returns.
