Bannockburn Vineyards was established by the late Stuart Hooper in 1974; his vision was to create a vineyard which would produce Australian wine of a quality to emulate the great wines of France, in particular top-line Burgundies. Bannockburn continues to realise Hooper's vision under winemaker Matthew Holmes who commenced making wine at Bannockburn in 2015.
The Bannockburn 1314 AD Pinot Noir has become affectionately known as the "mini-Bannockburn Pinot Noir" and has been hugely popular since it first appeared in 2011. We've recently welcomed the 2021 vintage of Bannockburn 1314 AD Pinot Noir; another superb value Pinot Noir from Bannockburn that is sure to have plenty of appeal.
Simply, this is a blindingly good release. It’s stylistically true, with a parade of aromas and flavours immediately recognisable to all Bannockburn Pinot fans: earth, undergrowth and bright, crunchy fruits. There’s a lovely, giving structure too. If the aim was to make a take-no-prisoners, immediately delicious Bannockburn Pinot, with an interest rate that is sky-high, then Matt Holmes has achieved full marks. And, perhaps we should not be surprised given the grade of fruit found in the bottle.
