Bannockburn '1314 AD' Chardonnay 2022


A cracking follow-up to the ’21, this Chardonnay is sourced from across Bannockburn’s organically farmed estate vineyards and includes a parcel from the pedigreed 1976 vines. The fruit was whole-bunch-pressed and settled overnight. Fermented wild, the wine rested on lees with no stirring for eight months, before blending and bottling. The 2022 saw 20% new oak which is faultlessly integrated.

“…Bannockburn produces outstanding wines across the range, all with individuality, style, great complexity and depth of flavour. The low-yielding estate vineyards play their role. Winemaker Michael Glover is determined to enhance the reputation of Bannockburn.” James Halliday

Bannockburn's viticultural principles are based on a healthy respect for the land and responsible farming, e.g. the use of organic composting and straw mulching to eliminate need for herbicide sprays and the cultivation of inter-row cover crops to add soil nutrients. Wines are made on a low-intervention basis.
