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 Pinots and Shiraz included 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
- 2013 SRH Chardonnay
- 2013 Serré Pinot Noir
- 2015 Serré Pinot Noir
- 2015 De La Terre Pinot Noir
- 2015 De La Roche Shiraz
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!
