Bannockburn ‘Douglas’ Cabernet Blend 2014 - Geelong, Victoria

Bannockburn ‘Douglas’ Cabernet Blend 2014 - Geelong, Victoria


The Story

This wine is in keeping with the philosophy behind the ‘Douglas’ label, which is to produce a red wine blend that genuinely reflects each Bannockburn vintage, from estate only grown fruit. Changes in the wine style will occur because no two growing seasons are ever the same in this southerly region. The 2012 vintage produced excellent fruit quality across the range of these wines. Bannockburn’s adherence to dry-grown viticulture, with close planting organic pratices, extended macerations and careful barrel selection make these exciting wines. In 2016 James Halliday’s Wine Companion, rated Bannockburn Winery as an Outstanding Winery, awarding it with a Red Five Star Rating.

M+Q Notes

In this ‘Geelong Claret’ incarnation, Cabernet is the star performer, with dusty blackcurrant and licorice flavours dominant. There is sufficient Merlot and Shiraz to round out the mid-palate and some savoury meaty characters add interest. This is a bigger, bolder expression of ‘Douglas’ than previous releases, with 65% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Pinot Noir and 5% Merlot.
