Tasting Notes

A sublime introduction to Seresin Pinot Noir. Expressive ripe red berry fruit aromas dominate the nose, intermingling seamlessly with mature, earthy, savoury aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, yet focussed and defined by firm, dusty tannins that are derived from a rigorous selection of French oak barrels.

Wine Ageing:14 months ageing in seasoned French oak barrels.

Winemaking Style:Modern / low-intervention

Harvest:2018 will be remembered as being rather unusual for Marlborough, with a run of wet conditions following a period of warm weather. Low-yielding grapes were hand-picked.

Winemaking:The fruit was destemmed and cold soaked in a tank. The must was then warmed and fermented with wild yeast, with the caps hand-plunged daily during fermentation. The wine was left on skins for 4-5 weeks, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to aged French oak barrels. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during the maturation, before it was bottled lightly filtered and unfined.

Viticulture:A large majority of the fruit comes from the clay-rich hillside of the Raupo Creek Vineyard, which is located in the Omaka Valley. A small portion comes from the Noa vineyard grown on Waimakariri alluvial soils, located in the Wairau Valley.

Food Pairing:Beef Bourguignon, Duck breast with cherry Sauce, Mushroom risotto, Roast Duck with orange Glaze, Grilled Salmon with dill Sauce, Coq au Vin, Beef Wellington, Lamb Tagine, Ratatouille, Seared Ahi Tuna.

The Wine Front - Gary Walsh

Bright red fruit, a little floral, also with some citrus zest and cedar. It’s medium-bodied, fresh, a cool feel to it, slightly sappy, but with a pleasing ‘mineral’ edge, some fine dusty/sandy tannin, and a some earthiness on a lively finish of solid length. Stylish. Good bones. I like it.

The Real Review - Bob Campbell MW

Light in colour but not lacking in power with savoury and stemmy characters occupying centre-stage while cherry, berry and violet flavours give support. A stylish pinot noir. Good food wine.
