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.

The Bannockburn S.R.H. Chardonnay has been name for their founder - Stuart Reginald Hooper. Fruit for this wine has been sourced from their oldest chardonnay vines at Olive Tree Hill Vineyard. The 12 rows of Chardonnay planted in 1976. These vines have roots well embedded in the ancient marine sediments that form the bedrock in this area. They seem to suck the minerality right out of their subsoil and deliver a spine-tingling wash of salinity to support the intense flavour and texture for which this benchmark Chardonnay is well known. 

Medium-depth yellow colour leads into a shyly reserved bouquet which speaks of buttery shortbread, dried citrus peels and butterscotch which is more evident on the palate, where the wine is very intense and even quite powerful, with a long-lasting carry loaded with penetrating lemon/grapefruit flavours. The aftertaste is refreshing and full of energy. A delicious and very impressive chardonnay. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review, 97 Points
