Tucked away in a gentle valley, hidden from view, just off the Midland highway between Geelong and Ballarat are the unassuming but beautiful Bannnockburn vineyards.  Steeped in history and surrounded by beauty, a wine tasting with winemaker Matt Holmes will leave you inspired and curious to learn more about this magical region that for so many years has been left in peace to grow grapes.  First settled by Swiss immigrants in the 1800’s, in the 1960s it was revived and became one of the early pioneers of Victorian Pinot Noir.  The region is famous for limestone soils which year after year delivers complex and award winning wines.

Tasting Notes

95+ Points Campbell Mattinson
I guess that you’d call this light but its length and general insistence is right up there. Indeed over the course of 24 hours this just built and expanded in the most impressive of ways. It’s a minerally pinot noir, smoky and spicy, with red cherried flavour run through with herbs and twigs and undergrowth. In its infancy, now, it somehow manages to be quite remarkably complex; it will only add from here. Certainly it’s light but this is an outstanding pinot noir.
