’2009 is the starting point from where Bannockburn shiraz starts to talk, become really interesting’, offers winemaker Michael Glover. The 2009 marked the first year Bannockburn went 100% whole bunch in the ferment, ‘pinot noir and whole bunch can give amazing perfume, sweetness, brilliant spice, but shiraz and whole bunch brings textural drive and seriousness, and the meaty, gamey, sausage and savoury things that can be confronting to some expecting more ‘typical’ Australian shiraz’, explains Glover. Just released too…

Layers and layers and layers to this wine. Perfume requires attention with its meatiness and flecks of herbal complexity – such wonderful savouriness here. Texture is dry, chewy, tannin-driven and yet soupy in depth, like a complex bouillon laboured over by a chef seeking finesse of flavour but a strength too. This wine is seriously deep and glorious to sip – a wine you savour and don’t want to finish, swirling darkly and brooding as it evolves even in glass. Glory.
