This iconic vineyard is responsible for Bannockburn’s most memorable and certified organic Pinot Noir. The 1.2 hectares of densely planted, low-yielding, own-rooted vines (9,000 per hectare) were planted in 1984 and 1986. The vines sit on a small plateau in the estate’s signature volcanic, basalt and limestone-rich soils. The fruit for Serré was entirely destemmed before fermenting on skins for 10 days. The wine was pressed to hogsheads (33% new) and then left to mature on lees until February 2023. 
“This release is a wonder to behold. It’s firm, svelte, powerful and complex, with terrific length and all-round conviction. It’s a wine with X-factor. It tastes of earth and macerated cherries, strawberries and woodsy spice, undergrowth and fresh beet. It captivates you at hello and makes you sorrowful at goodbye. This is Bannockburn at its best, its greatness bell clear.” 96 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
“A densely planted site, nigh on Burgundian density, underlain by limestone and a maritime tang. This is very good. A bunchy, woodsy campfire spice segues effortlessly to cherry amaro, damson, umame and the fiery waft of the souk. Barely mid-weighted of feel, so detailed and ethereal is it. Intense of flavor and incandescent of energy. Best after 2026. Screw cap.” 95 points, Ned Goodwin MW, jamessuckling.com
