Product Description

Planted in 2007, the site lies on higher ground above the De La Terre block, so essentially it's a westerly extension of Serré. The vines came from cuttings taken from Best's and Tahbilk, and were planted on a mix of rootstock and own roots. The whole plot covers just 0.8ha. The name, "from the rocks", alludes to the plethora of volcanic rocks that litter the soil of this parcel. The planting density of 10,000 vines per hectare results in a naturally low yield of just 500g per vine (or less). To put this in perspective, Bannockburn's old-vine Shiraz from the Range vineyard - already a low-yielding site - crops closer to 1.5-2kg per vine. Confirming his theory that yield trumps vine age, Glover notes that the quality of fruit from this five-year-old vineyard is already outgunning the older site.As always this is a super complex, layered wine brimming with deep, lifted blackberry and ripe plum fruit with black olive and a roasted meat-like complexity. It's a mouth-filling and fleshy wine, yet at the same time, quite firm and fresh on the finish with that racy, saline minerality that is so very Bannockburn.
