A harvest they will remember for a long time, not only for the added pressures and stresses that were thrown upon them by COVID-19, but more positively (and thankfully), for the splendid harvest conditions experienced in Marlborough and stunning fruit that they managed to harvest ... fittingly, the wines from 2020 will age beautifully and they will be drinking them for many years to come, remembering this unique vintage! After a warm and wet spring, flowering was experienced earlier supported by decent weather conditions, giving perfectly formed bunches and average yields. Fortunately, the last significant rain event was experienced just before Christmas, and from then on perfect ripening conditions were enjoyed. Dry, moderate day time temperatures and cool nights which certainly played a big part in creating white wines bursting with flavour and intensity, yet naturally balanced with vibrant acidity and generous length.
Certified organic grapes were harvested by machine in cool temperatures, where possible, during the month of April. The fruit was chilled, crushed, destemmed and left for 48 to 72 hours to settle. The clear juice was then carefully racked into a variety of stainless-steel vessels. A long, cool fermentation proceeded to enhance the pure, distinctive flavours that are the hallmark of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. After a short period on lees, the wine was stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
Derived from 100% certified organic fruit from the Omaka Valley.

"From Seresin, the very youthful 2020 vintage is full-bodied and dry, with very good depth of ripe tropical-fruit flavours, crisp and lively. Certified organic, it should be at its best mid-2021+" Michael Cooper, NZ Wines Buyers Guide, 2021
