Style: Dense and expressive red wine
This single vineyard Shiraz carries ripe fruit aromas of cherries and fruit compote. Complex and expressive on the nose, spices, nutty and a little truffle-infused, integrated with oak on the palate. Fruity and generous with under lying notes of savoury, herby and a touch of woodsmoke.
In the early 1970s, Stuart Hooper envisioned creating a vineyard that would produce Australian wine of quality to emulate the great regions of France. A major contribution to the success of Bannockburn Vineyards was the strong foundation Stuart provided through his purist, uncompromising approach when he established the vineyard and winery to produce quality wines. Since Stuart’s passing, Bannockburn Vineyards remains the Hooper family’s business, with his daughters as custodians to ensure his philosophy is preserved. The winemaker, Matt Holmes, approaches winemaking by taking a step back and allow the healthy, well-balanced fruit flavours to develop into wines with minimal additions and low interventions.
