2019 PINOT NOIR, 1314AD, Bannockburn. Geelong, Victoria, Aus

Bin:  438

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.

Grape variety:

100% Pinot Noir, 25% fermented as whole bunches; all mature in barrel for a year, with 25% new wood used.

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. I remember first trying a 1999 Shiraz that was clean, bags of aromatics, not overblown, soft and maturing with calming elegance, this was in 2016.”

Old Bridge rating:

New World ripeness with an impressive extra layer of spice and complexity. Good value for the quality.
