Tasting Notes

Fine-boned and focused, the Seresin 2019 Estate Chardonnay shows nicely the influence of earlier picking and the continued philosophy of low intervention wine making practices. Highly poised and elegant, the nose exhibits wonderful flinty minerality, white flowers and ripe orchard fruit, which follows through onto the palate. It is a wine that is structured and complex, yet delicate and graceful.

Harvest:Blessed with a glorious, dry summer, the 2019 harvest commenced remarkably early, on March 1st. Vintage 2019 will be remembered as relatively trouble-free, and having a long harvest period – after the last few years when all varieties ripened at once, the slow, steady and spread-out nature of 2019 was welcomed.

Winemaking:The fruit was loaded in to our press, then gently whole bunched pressed. The different batches were either cold settled for 24 hours, then racked to French oak barrels and puncheons, taking the fine lees, or pressed directly to barrel. A further batch remained in tank (50%). All batches were left to commence fermentation (both primary and secondary) naturally. After 10 months on lees, the batches were blended and filtered prior to bottling. Of the 50% oak portion, the final blend comprises of 5% new oak, and the balance 2nd, 3rd fill and neutral puncheons.

Viticulture:Sourced from the clay rich Raupo vineyard, in the centre of the Omaka Valley. This vineyard has a gentle north–west facing aspect and enjoys high sunshine hours and minimal rain.

Food Pairing:Lemon Butter Grilled prawns, Chicken Caesar Salad, Lemon Herb Roasted Chicken, Crab linguine, Crab and avocado rolls, Thai crab fried rice with prik nam pla, Thai kohlrabi and crab salad.

The Real Review - Bob Campbell MW

Bright, fresh, high-energy chardonnay with green apple, oyster-shell, citrus, grapefruit and root ginger flavours. Made in a fruit-forward style, with a thread of tangy acidity helping to drive a lengthy finish.
