Bannockburn Wine

(8 products)
“…Bannockburn produces outstanding wines across the range, all with individuality, style, great complexity and depth of flavour. The low-yielding estate vineyards play their role. Winemaker Michael Glover is determined to enhance the reputation of Bannockburn.” ***** Outstanding Winery, James Halliday, 2015 Australian Wine Companion

“Bannockburn’s Michael Glover is one of the most intelligent and questioning winemakers of Australia’s younger generation, working with dry-grown, hand harvested vines in Geelong’s intriguing volcanic soils and sometimes challenging climate.” Andrew Jefford, the World of Fine Wine. Issue #28, 2010

Michael Glover – like all quality winemakers – wants, most of all, to make wines that clearly and powerfully express the personality of their sites. To this end he has significantly lowered the yields in the Bannockburn vineyards; he has embarked on a progressive program of organic viticulture; and he has turned off the irrigation. In the winery; wild ferments, whole bunches, long maceration times, extended lees contact and a fastidious barrel selection process all play their part. These factors along with mature vines and high density plantings (by Australian standards) result in wines that are both exciting and definitively “Bannockburn” in style.

The Bannockburn range includes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and a dry red blend that they call “Douglas”. In addition Bannockburn make four celebrated single-vineyard wines: S.R.H. – from the oldest Chardonnay vines in the Olive Tree Hill Vineyard. Named in recognition of Bannockburn founder, Stuart Reginald Hooper. Serré – Pinot Noir from the Serré Vineyard. This site is close-planted, trellised low and has narrow rows - replicating the tough vineyard conditions of Grand Cru Burgundy. Typical yields here are around 500g/vine. Range – Range is the original vineyard site planted in 1974. The vines here are dry-grown with a natural cropping level of 1.0kg/vine.  Stuart – Drawing off small batches of the best fruit from Bannockburn’s oldest Pinot vineyard, planted in 1978, to produce a stylistically different expression of Pinot Noir.
