2022 Pinot Noir Bannockburn

Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy Jane Skilton MW March 2024 ***** 95

Deep colour. Fruit sits firmly in the blue spectrum; bilberry and damson plum. Some dried thyme too. Opulent, fruit saturated flavours are silky and ripe at first then tannins sweep in to give a fine powdery veneer across the palate. Lacks the layered complexity of the single vineyard pinots but instead is a delightful expression of pinot, that will be approachable in the medium term. Drink from 2025 – 2030. Tasted: December 2023.

Succulent red berries on the nose, with green undergrowth adding complexity. Delicious smokiness on the palate, and effortless persistence. Has substance without being over-charged. The essence of Pinot. (RH) 14% Drink 2024 – 2028

The Real Review Bob Campbell MW August 2023 97/100

Deliciously fragrant and intense floral aroma that follows on to the palate where it is joined by cassis, dark cherry, black Doris plum, vanilla, savoury dried herbs and mixed spice and anise flavours. This could is the best Bannockburn pinot noir that I can recall tasting. It has an ethereal texture and a backbone of fine tannins. Absolutely delicious wine!
