Tasting notes from the winery for Seresin Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Brimming with concentrated ripe aromas of warm autumnal interlaced with savoury notes, this Sauvignon Blanc shows the full spectrum of flavours. Characterized by striking the perfect balance between complexity and drinkability, this Sauvignon Blanc is highly textured and, above all, delicious and poised. Showing a positive effect from extended aging on lees and barrel aging, wild yeast and a splash of Sémillon.

Blended from several parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from across our three different vineyard sites, as well as a small volume of Semillon, this is a true reflection of Seresin Estate in a bottle.

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.

Six parcels of fruit, from across our two vineyards, were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The freerun juice was settled naturally then transferred to either a small stainless steel vessel or old French oak vessel, whereby each parcel undertook and completed fermentation naturally. After a long period of fermentation (8-16 weeks) each parcel was racked and topped, with a small addition of SO2. The parcels then remained on lees for 9 months, then were blended, stabilised and filtered. A small portion of Sémillon (8%) is included in the blend, the portion of barrel fermentation and ageing is 15%.

Sourced from our old vines that thrive on river silt terraces in the Central Wairau Valley as well as our clay-rich Raupo Creek vineyard, which has a gentle north-west facing aspect, settled in the centre of the Omaka Valley. Both vineyards are managed following Organic and Biodynamic principles.

2018 will be remembered as being rather unusual for Marlborough, with a run of wet conditions following a period of warm weather. Fortunately our vineyards all fared well, with low yields and careful management ensuring a large proportion was harvested by the end of March. Above all, we will remember this vintage for its fast and furious nature – blink and you nearly missed it! However the resulting wines are showing a great deal of poise, elegance and subtlety. We are beyond excited to nurture them into the bottle and bring them to market.
