Product Description

"60% Olive Tree Vineyard, 40% close planted; 100% whole bunch-fermented, 20 months barrel maturation (mainly used). Deeply coloured, but not star-bright; an ultra-complex and power-packed pinot, multi-plum flavours surrounded by a palisade of whole bunch stemmy notes. Cries out for time in bottle"
96 Points James Halliday, Wine Companion


Michael Glover’s words to describe this wine: “Complex, full of character, idiosyncratic, challenging, perhaps even difficult … all good pinot noir requirements and descriptors in my book, and everything you would want from an entertaining dinner guest.”

"That’s probaby the best way to describe this wine: if you invited it over for dinner, it would end up stealing the show – partly in horror, partly in fascination, partly in anticipation at what the hell it’s going to throw up next. Personality, it does not lack. It is immensely stalky, truffly, bitter, fragrant, spicy, herbal. It’s not unripe, but it is not a fruit-driven wine. Opening it is like detonating a pinot noir bomb. For the basics – acidity, tannin, length – it’s tailored to perfection. I often say of writers: technical proficiency means nothing to me, because I take technique for granted. What I’m looking for are writers who actually have something to say. This wine, following on from that thought, has something extravagant to say. For that point alone, it has to be both credited, and granted an audience."
94 Points Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front


REVUES ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2010
"Mid-garnet, slight bricking; the use of stems is de rigeur for Bannockburn, and the perfume of sap, cold tea and spices dominates the bouquet; the palate reveals the dark fruit beneath, with freshness in terms of acidity and silky tannins providing a very complex and thoroughly intriguing pinot noir".
