About

This is the first wine from Bannockburn vineyards that was made and bottled beginning-to-end by new head winemaker, Matt Holmes.

Matt has stamped his own signature on this release. Where ex-winemaker Michael Glover opted for 100% whole bunches in the previous release of 1314 A.D. - here, Matt uses only 20% allowing the wine possibly more universal appeal.

If you’ve loved the previous releases of 1314 A.D., fear not, the vineyard characters from this site still shine through so there’s plenty reminiscent of past vintages. There’s just a lot less whole bunch character which is likely to thrill some Bannockburn diehards and sadden others.

Just a taste of what’s to come from Matt Holmes and it’s very exciting stuff.

What It Tastes Like

Feels much more tame than the Glover releases. Easier to get to know. With the earth and undergrowth of those soils backing up the fresh red berry lead - this is sure to get some fans excited for more from Matt. Some orange peel characters and an easy loose-knit feel - this is tasty Pinot with some flair.
