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.
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.
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
