Seresin Sauvignon Blanc 2011
WINE MAKER'S NOTES: This Sauvignon Blanc displays passion fruit and herbaceous on the nose with a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is finely textured with ripe gooseberry, tropical fruit and citrus notes, framed by a fresh acidity to create a persistent finish. Drink now to 2016.
VARIETIES: Sauvignon Blanc (95%) and Semillon (5%)
VINIFICATION: Twenty different parcels of Sauvignon Blanc and one portion of Semillon from the different vineyard blocks were pressed and then fermented separately so that we had a greater range of options when creating the final blend. The wine was naturally fermented using wild yeast for added complexity and texture, and approximately fifteen percent of the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were fermented in aged French oak barriques.
“Seresin remain one of New Zealand’s benchmark producers largely thanks to a policy of zero compromise when it comes to quality. Grapes are organically grown, hand harvested, rigorously sorted, fermented with wild yeasts, and judiciously blended prior to bottling. The results are spellbinding.”Matt Skinner, Wine Critic
