Bannockburn De La Terre Pinot Noir 2018

Red Wines

In stock. Dispatch from Sydney next day
Stocked in temperature controlled warehouse
The 2018 was fermented wild with 10% whole-bunch and spent two weeks on skins. Maturation was for 12 months in French oak hogsheads (20% new), before blending and bottling in early 2019. This is a superb example of this wine, arguably the best we’ve seen. Perfumed, deep yet superbly sculpted and layered with wonderful, cherry-cola fruit and loads of spice. You see the purity and brightness of the vintage, and the evolution in the vines really shines through.

Winery Notes, Bannockburn

PRODUCER

De La Terre is a beautiful, sloping vineyard that was planted in 2007 to 10,000 vines per hectare. This density is still very rare in an Australian setting, and results in a natural yield of around 500 grams per vine or less (i.e., Burgundy Grand Cru levels). Like all the vineyards today, it is organically managed and lies right beside the Serré vineyard (although DLT is on the slope and Serré sits on a small plateau directly above). Despite this proximity, both wines are very different, with De La Terre gifting an inkier, wilder and spicier expression of Pinot than Serré. Factors in these differences include the slope on which the majority of the vineyard is planted, the clonal selection (777), and the north-south row orientation rather than the east-west of Serré.
