French influences abound at Bannockburn, where the experience has contributed richly to the style of Pinot Noir. Nineteen hectares of vine are mostly dense planted on low fertility clay based soils beside the Moorabool River where yields are very low. Ripening is cool and late. Pinot Noir grapes are whole bunch fermented by wild indigenous yeasts in four tonnes open fermenters, saturated with CO2 and sealed. After ten days, batches are treated to a daily pigeage over four weeks of ferment. Upon completion, musts are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new oak hogsheads for a year, followed by rack and returned to older barriques for a further eight months, to be bottled without fining or filtration.
Ruby red colour, a wine of brilliance and clarity. Lifted nose with earthy forest notes and rhubarb, five spice and toasted oak. Characters carry through to the palate, which is of medium weight - fresh, light ethereal yet with good flavour intensity. Great balance and mouthfeel, as the palate is still quite youthful and restrained, silky textured and elegantly structured. A long, smooth, fine tannin finish.
