About

The Bannockburn Sauvignon Blanc was one of Michael Glover’s most experimental wines and became something of his signature during his time at the wheel of this great vineyard.

Matt Holmes’ interpretation is not as wild as the Glover version but still carries the textural intrigue this wine has become known for.

The fruit was fermented in three equal batches: the first on skins for seven days, the second on lees in mostly old oak, and the third pressed straight to stainless steel vats.

It’s a little more conventional but no less powerful than previous vintages and got the nod of approval from James Halliday with 95 points.

What It Tastes Like

“The skin fermented portion had a strong cinnamon note during ferment, and while ferment aromas don’t always persist into the finished wine it has in this case. Some spice, and varietal marker green peas complete the nose. Full and yet dry, breadth from the skins, texture from the lees contact and yet refreshing acid on the palate.” Matt Holmes
