2019 Bannockburn Pinot Noir
Sorry, currently out of stock
The 2019 was drawn from a range of blocks (planted in 1976, 1997 and 2007), all on soils of volcanic loam and dark clay over a limestone base, and with a wide variety of clones (mainly MV6 with a smattering of the ‘Dijon’ or ‘Bernard’ clones 114, 115 and 777).
“Medium red colour with tints of purple and black, the bouquet char-oaky, smoky, stemmy and bunchy, and more appealing than that may sound. The palate is rich and full, with loads of detail and nuance, heaps of interest, the palate full and rich, round and very fruit-sweet at the core, with Campari, balsamic herbs—the full whole-bunch deal. Long finish, too. A satisfying pinot. Good value, too”
