2011 CHARDONNAY, Bannockburn. Geelong, Victoria, Australia

Bin:  800

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Geelong is about 80km west of Melbourne. It’s not a beautiful area but the cooling ocean breezes and the aged limestone soils make it ideal for growing Pinot Noir. The winery is named after the nearby township of Bannockburn.
This Chardonnay is “drawn mostly from the Estate’s Olive Tree Hill Vineyard (planted in 1976) and Winery Block (1981), which are on volcanic soils over limestone, with an average vine age around 35 years.”

Producer:

From their UK agent GB vintners:
“The Hoopers were one of the first families to plant vines here post the phylloxera years & one of the few still in operation. If you didn’t know, Geelong was the first region, originally, planted with grapes in Victoria in the 1840’s by the Swiss. The wines have always pivoted to Burgundy in style and in recent years this has been matched by even more work moving towards organic farming & improving viticulture. Their wines are prized possessions on the secondary market due to their ability to age well.”
