Upon completion, components are filled to a high proportion of new French oak barrels to begin a course of eighteen months maturation, bottled without any stabilization, unfiltered and unfined.

French influences abound at Bannockburn, where the experience has contributed richly to the style of Pinot Noir. Nineteen hectares of vine are mostly dense planted on low fertility clay based soils beside the Moorabool River where yields are very low. Ripening is cool and late. Pinot Noir grapes are whole bunch fermented by wild indigenous yeasts in four tonnes open fermenters, saturated with CO2 and sealed. After ten days, batches are treated to a daily pigeage over four weeks of ferment. Upon completion, musts are pressed into a selection of seasoned and new oak hogsheads for a year, followed by rack and returned to older barriques for a further eight months, to be bottled without fining or filtration.
 
Ruby red colour, a wine of brilliance and clarity. Lifted nose with earthy forest notes and rhubarb, five spice and toasted oak. Characters carry through to the palate, which is of medium weight - fresh, light ethereal yet with good flavour intensity. Great balance and mouthfeel, as the palate is still quite youthful and restrained, silky textured and elegantly structured. A long, smooth, fine tannin finish.

An extended term on lees and up to eighteen months maturation in a combination of new and prior use lightly toasted French Alliers oak barriques, is followed by hand bottling without filtration.
 
Deep red colour. Rich bouquets of raspberry, deep, ripe and concentrated aromas of cherry, earth and musk.

Phillip Jones was inspired by the great growths of La Belle France, to abondon his career as research scientist and plant Bordeaux varietal clones amongst the pasturelands of Gippsland. All good men of science are persuaded by the facts, a few fruitless vintages convinced Jones to apply his efforts to the noble grapes of Burgundy, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Jones makes wine like a shaman, his standards of viticulture are at one with local flora and fauna, for the realization of vintages which are crafted through an analytic focus on the sanctity of the wine's texture.

Only nature can make great wine, the hand of man can introduce all the parts but it is ultimately a process defined by the environment. Phillip Jones is non interventionist in his winemaking, encouraging his Pinot Noir grapes to ripen fully and achieve maximum expression before the magic of fermentation turns the fruit into wine. He is also an artisan consumed by a reverence for the textural integrity of his wines. Pumps and abrupt movements are forbidden, transfer of the juices and components are conducted with a view to preserving the tranquility of the wine. Oak is employed judiciously, to soften the wine for up to eighteen months, integrating all parts without disturbing the virtue of a wonderfully textural Pinot Noir.
 
Very dark scarlet red. Bouquet of bright berries, fresh mushrooms and forest floor, rich with cherry notes, licorice and caraway spice over a background of cured meats. Plummy, silky lined palate, exquisitely balanced with a measure of mid palate richness. A juicy acid backbone and supple, disciplined tannins, before a genteel finish on a lingering length of spiced, festive plummy notes.

The wine spends nine months on sedimentery lees and a total of eleven ageing in a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels.
