The 2019 Bannockburn Chardonnay, is sourced from various clones (Mendoza, B95, B548, UCD6) harvested from the Cornish Point and The Elms vineyards between March 30th and April 4th. Bunches were in perfect health. Bright and intense fruit flavours with excellent acidity have resulted in the ‘definitive’ Bannockburn Chardonnay: detailed, precise, long and very satisfying.
“...we have no reluctance to share with you our enthusiasm for the 2019’s. These are without doubt some of the most thrilling wines we have yet made. Making them, following their evolution through élevage and preparing them for release (racking, bottling, writing tasting notes....), has been a pure delight. It is a vintage, not of an exceptional season, but a result of having every stage of growth perfectly dialed in. This is something we are more frequently approaching these days; a result of both our increased efforts and combined knowledge and experience over the last 24 years.” - Felton Road
