Bannockburn is home to the biggest names in Central Otago Pinot Noir and is warmer than the cooler Gibbston Valley.
Michael Cooper
The youthful 2016 vintage was estate-grown at Bannockburn and matured for a year in French oak barriques (31 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with fresh cherry, plum and spice flavours, well-integrated oak, and very good complexity and depth. Best drinking 2019+.
