About

The Serre Pinot Noir vineyard is the jewel in the crown of Bannockburn. This Burgundian inspired close planted site produces an astonishingly small amount of fruit. Average yield for these 13 rows is a meagre 500kg per vine, similar to the level of production of the prized Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy. The 2013 release of Serre is an intense and savoury wine of detail and persistence. Fermented as 100% whole bunches and left to sit on skins for over two weeks, every ounce of nuance from this stunning vineyard is masterfully distilled into the bottle by since departed winemaker, Michael Glover. A wine of rare power and unique character built for the collector and aficionado.

What it Tastes Like

"Exceptional colour; whole bunch fermentation is the most frequently discussed aspect of pinot noir making, but Serre almost always comes through as a top pinot, this no exception. Yes, there are savoury characters, but supple red and black cherry and blueberry provide the superstructure. Will be long lived." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
