Hard to believe this is only the second release from Bannockburn’s close-planted, dry-grown De La Roche vineyard. Planted in 2007, the site lies on higher ground above the De La Terre block, so essentially it’s a westerly extension of Serr√©. The vines came from cuttings taken from Best’s and Tahbilk, and were planted on a mix of rootstock and own roots. The whole plot covers just 0.8-hectares. The name alludes to the plethora of volcanic rocks that litter the soil of this parcel.

“Second release ex new close-planted shiraz vineyard (10 000 vines per hectare), yielding 500 grammes per vine. A super-elegant, highly fragrant spice, pepper, black cherry and blackberry compote that is deceptively light on its feet; fine, but distinctly savoury tannins provide complexity and structure.” 96 points, James Halliday
