"This is the first time I have used whole bunches in Shiraz and I am very excited by the evolution of style that the Shiraz is undertaking. Whole bunches in Shiraz at Bannockburn have a very different effect compared to the Pinot Noir. The whole bunches seem to give a far more savoury character to the wine." - Michael Glover
Great to have with Pasta, lamb, beef, pork, rich casseroles and all cheese dishes.
Bannockburn Vineyards was established by Stuart Hooper in 1974. His vision was to create a vineyard which would produce Australian wine of a quality to emulate the great wines of France, in particular the great Burgundies. Stuart Hooper had a purist, uncompromising approach to quality grape growing and winemaking. He had a strong belief in making wines, which genuinely reflect the flavours of the vineyard.
Bannockburn Vineyards remains in the Hooper family and its founders philosophy remains as the cornerstone behind all they do at Bannockburn today. All Bannockburn wines are produced from estate-grown fruit off their 27 hectares of vines. Situated on 3 separate sites, the vineyard soil profile ranges from black brown volcanic loam to dense clay sitting on a limestone base, and are generally of low fertility. The first vineyard was planted in 1974 with subsequent plantings during the early 1980’s, making them among the oldest in the Geelong region.
At Bannockburn Vineyards they believe their vineyards are what make the wines unique and provide a true point of difference. Since 2005, Michael Glover has been making the wines with great diligence and passion. “...everything we do is done with thought and care and without compromising on quality.” Organic practice, a belief in dry-grown viticulture, vine age and close planting combine with wild ferments, use of whole bunches, extended maceration times, extended lees contact and a fastidious barrel selection process combine to make wines that are exciting, unique and clearly identifiable as “Bannockburn”.
