Bannockburn Vineyards' commitment to quality drives everything they do, from the vineyard to the bottle. All Bannockburn wines are made from fruit grown on their 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.

At Bannockburn they only produce a small amount of Riesling, but it’s a great opportunity to have some fun with one of the “noble” grape varieties. The 2021 vintage was predominantly made from fruit off the original site planted in 1976, also includes fruit from a vineyard planted in 2015. Picked by hand March 24, 2021. The resulting wine has ripe citrus and stone fruit aromatics. The nicely weighted palate is balanced by moderate acid and hint of barrel contact. Drink now or cellar.

Light straw-yellow colour, with a broken seashell aroma that verges on white pepper. A definite note of oyster brine. Some new-wine yeastiness. The palate is tense and tautly structured, refined and piercingly intense, and there is a juiciness in the centre-palate. The finish lingers long and becomes very dry and savoury as it progresses. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 93 Points
