    Sauvignon Blanc
This premium wine is blended from several parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from across three different vineyard sites, as well as a small volume of Semillon. Subtle on the nose with warm notes of ripe yellow stone-fruit, soft passion fruit and a chalky-mineral complexity. The palate is layered and finely-textured, with ripe gooseberry, tropical and citrus notes, framed by a mouth-watering acidity, which creates a persistent finish.

Tasting Note:

Subtle on the nose with warm notes of ripe yellow stone-fruit, soft passionfruit and chalky-mineral complexity. The palate is layered and finely textured, with ripe gooseberry, tropical and citrus notes, framed by a mouth-watering acidity, which creates a persistent finish.

Vintage:

The 2016 vintage will be remembered for a challenging cold start, followed by a spectacular long summer. The cold start meant the team was under pressure to fight frosts during the early stage of vine growth, however a warm and protracted summer period with dry, warm weather during the harvest period, meant the fruit was picked on-time and delivered intact and without stress. The harvest period was fast and furious due to physiological ripeness occurring simultaneously, resulting in one of the most compact vintages we have ever experienced.

Winemaking:

This unique Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is comprised of 18 different parcels of Sauvignon Blanc and two of Semillon, each picked from different vineyard blocks, which were then gently whole bunch pressed and fermented separately. The wine was naturally fermented using wild yeast, and 15% of the total blend was fermented in old French oak barriques to give complexity and texture. After 9 months, each batch was tasted and selected to create a well-rounded and complex wine.

Viticulture:

Certified organic fruit was hand-picked from two of our three biodynamic vineyards. The majority came from the upper terraces of our Noa vineyard, on Waimakiriri soils of alluvial origin.

REVIEWS FOR 2012 VINTAGE
"This is one of the region’s most sophisticated, subtle and satisfying Sauvignons ... Mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, it is very nonherbaceous, placing its accent on rich tropical-fruit flavours, with a subtle seasoning of oak. Fleshy and concentrated, showing excellent depth, complexity and harmony, it’s drinking well now. " Michael Cooper, Buyer’s Guide to New Zealand Wines, 2013

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
