The 2021 Bannockburn Chardonnay has a core of fresh citrus acids, stone fruits, minerality and mouth filling texture are always components of this wine. Subtle winemaking inputs and the generous flavour of our site offer a classic expression of Bannockburn Chardonnay.

"Whole-bunch pressed, fermented wild in French hogsheads and puncheons (20% new), 10 months on lees, partial mlf. True to the Bannockburn style, which offers both power and finesse. The former is set in structure and solid in body. The latter is all about a world of marvellous fruit and oak flavours: mandarin skin, nectarine, white peach, buttered toast, almond bread, quince paste. It's dense, lifted by a citrusy acidity that is just so cleansing, so right."

Winery & Vintage Info

All Bannockburn wines are made from fruit grown on our long-established estate in the Geelong wine region. The meticulously tended vineyards and the hands-off approach by winemaker Matt Holmes result in wines that are exciting, complex and uniquely Bannockburn.

The estate bottling was made from fruit grown across all vineyard sites; Olive Tree Hill, Winery Block, Stuart Block & Kelly Lane. The oldest vines planted in 1976, through to the most recent 2016 planting.

Handpicked parcels of fruit were whole bunch pressed, settled over night, and racked to barrels for a wild yeast fermentation in a combination of French hogsheads and puncheons; approximately 20% was new oak. Malolactic fermentation occurred on 70% of the blend, with the remainder blocked. The wine was left on lees unstirred for 10 months prior to blending and bottling.
