Matt Holmes' 2021 Riesling includes material from a younger plot of Riesling (planted 2015). The lion’s share of the fruit remains drawn from Bannockburn’s ungrafted 1976 plantings. It was fermented in a combination of tank and oak cask. As with the last couple of vintages, there were no additions other than a touch of sulphur.

Reviews

“I love the texture of this. It keeps the race going but there’s a gentle hug as it passes along. Citrus, slate, lemon sorbet, green apple and smoked herb notes. It feels and tastes sophisticated. It’s dry and tight through the finish; it’s good now but it will develop nicely over the medium term. This was aged in oak but there are no overt oak flavours to be found; texture though, that’s another (positive) thing.”
93 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
"Produced from 2 blocks, one planted 1976. Half fermented in tank, half in aged French puncheons, stabilised with the deliberate retention of a touch of residual sugar. The result is a complex interplay of citrus and firm acidity."
