Just medium-bodied, but it has a lovely silky texture and drinks superbly now.
About the Wine
This stunning single vineyard Pinot Noir from Bannockburn comes from vines planted in two different directions, on both flat earth and a slope - all for the purpose of capturing the vineyard in the bottle.
It's very fitting that this wine is called De La Terre, then - meaning 'of the earth', this wine stands as a snapshot of the combination of soils found commonly across the Bannockburn estate.
It achieves this with effortless ease; overflowing aromas of dried herbs wrap around a red fruited heart, finished off with gentle, silky tannins. It's a gorgeous and elegant wine, each sip like taking a walk through the vines. Earthy Pinot fans, this ones for you.
For decades, the Bannockburn vineyard has been producing Burgundian-inspired wines which truly reflect the winery's unique terroir.
Originally planted by the legendary Gary Farr, the wines that comes from this unique vineyard in Geelong show a rare sense of place. The ancient riverbed soils impart a distinct saline character and a power which makes the wines from this place immediately identifiable.
With the arrival of new head winemaker, Matt Holmes, the next chapter of Bannockburn's long history has commenced.
New ideas, a fresh take, the start of something new and exciting for this famous patch of earth.
