2013 Bannockburn De La Roche Shiraz

Geelong, Victoria


Winemaker: Matt Holmes
Vineyard/Year: Bannockburn / 2013
Being poured at: Movida

Since its establishment by Stuart Reginald Hooper in 1974, Bannockburn Vineyards has been at the vanguard of the Australian fine wine story, producing vineyard specific wines of the highest quality from the start.

Planted in 2007, this 0.8 hectare vineyard lies on higher ground above the De La Terre slope, so essentially it’s a westerly extension of the Serré vineyard. The vines came from cuttings taken from Best’s and Tahbilk, and were planted on a mix of rootstock and own roots.

Tasting notes

The 2013 is a super complex, layered wine brimming with deep, lifted blackberry, tapenade and liquorice-like complexity. Its mouth filling and textured, yet at the same time very detailed, with the rich fruit nicely balanced with whole-bunch freshness and that racy, saline minerality that Bannockburn reds carry.
