Planted in 1984 and 1986, the iconic Serré vineyard is a 32-year-old, dry-grown, organically managed and low-cropping site that produces Bannockburn's most individual Pinot fruit. Serré is close-planted to 9000 vines per hectare and is trellised low with narrow rows-replicating the tough vineyard conditions and low-yields-per-vine approach of Grand Cru Burgundy. The site-based on volcanic surface material with darker clay over weathered basalt and limestone-is 1.2 hectares and planted to the MV6 clone. The 2016 was wild-fermented with roughly 30% whole bunches and raised for 15 months in French oak hogsheads (20% new) prior to bottling in May 2017. BANNOCKBURN
