Bannockburn manage some of the finest Chardonnay vines in Australia, dry grown and over thirty years of age. Techniques employed to vinify the superlative fruit follow the traditions of Burgundy, everything is done with thought and care, never compromising on quality. Organic practices and extended maceration before a fastidious barrel selection achieve a wine that's exciting and complex. Parcels of dry grown fruit are whole bunch pressed, without any settling or additions, into a mix of barriques, puncheons and fermenters, vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeasts and rested for two years on sedimentery lees. Structured and powerful, rich with Burgundy styled, soil derived crustacea characters.
Pale straw green hues. Complex nose displaying chalky minerality, almond meal, grapefruit pith and a creamy biscuit character derived from extended lees contact. The palate is very long with a lovely texture and weight. A hint of creaminess from some malo-lactic involvement. The palate is full without being broad, tight without being austere.
