Goldfields Pinot noir 2011
This wine tends to exhibit the more savoury character of the Pinot noir grape, (more typical of the Bannockburn sub-region) as opposed to fruity and floral characters. Earthy, spicy and herbal notes predominate on the nose. The taste is complex and shows the expected black cherry and dark plum notes, but the real interest lies beneath these flavours. Certainly a very complex wine with more than a hint of chocolate, liquorice, damp forest, and wild herbs showing through.
Barrel Selection Pinot noir 2009
This wine has flavours of black cherries, dark plums and berries. Behind these primary flavours there is an interesting hint of herbs, spice, mushroom, leather and even liquorice complementing its velvety mouthfeel.

Dry Riesling 2013
A youthful, classic Riesling. Our 2013 Bannock Brae Riesling is luminous apple green in appearance and displays lemon-lime and mineral aromas with hints of citrus blossom. Full and lively with flavours of citrus rind, green apple skin and hints of stone fruit. A textural wine with perfect balance between fruit flavours & the high natural acidity.
Cathy’s Rosé 2012
This Rosé is a pure reflection of the Pinot noir grape. A beautifully opulent nose of freshly picked red berry fruits with cherry, melon and candy-floss aromas.
Marlene’s Grüner Veltliner 2013
Our Marlene’s Grüner Veltliner 2013 shows classic aromas of white pepper, nectarine, fruit blossom and hints of dill. The palate is crisp and distinctive with flavours of nectarine, white peach and a juicy acid finish. A vibrant wine, precise, with good structure and a backbone of zesty acidity leaving the wine with a refreshing finish.
