About The Wine
A Riesling unlike many others in Australia. Part-raised in old oak, and coming from a warmer spot than other Riesling regions, it is both plush and invigorating.
It's got citrus and stonefruit flavours in waves, a concentrated, fullish palate, and has the typical sea shell, salty taste that typifies many Bannockburn wines (the vineyards are an old sea bed).
This is not a thin battery acid Riesling but has flesh, length and great individuality.
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.
