Personally I think it’s pretty much fantastic.
About The Wine
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 500g per vine, similar to the level of production of the prized Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy.
Serre is an intense and savoury wine of detail and persistence. Fermented with 20% 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 winemaker, Matt Holmes.
It's a wine of rare power and unique character built for the collector and aficionado.
For decades, the Bannockburn vineyard has been producing Burgundian-inspired wines which truly reflect the winery's unique terroir.
Originally planted by the legendary Gary Farr, the wines that comes from this unique vineyard in Geelong show a rare sense of place. The ancient riverbed soils impart a distinct saline character and a power which makes the wines from this place immediately identifiable.
With the arrival of new head winemaker, Matt Holmes, the next chapter of Bannockburn's long history has commenced.
New ideas, a fresh take, the start of something new and exciting for this famous patch of earth.
