Refreshing, crisp and distinctive, this Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect solution for summer time get-togethers. This exemplary Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is light and zingy, yet its intense aromas and flavours leave a lasting impression and complement everything from grilled asparagus to spicy Asian food.
"Seresin, under the capable guidance of winemaker Brian Bicknell, continues to turn out exemplary Sauvignon Blanc. The 2005 is a great success, boasting sexy aromas of ripe peaches, gooseberries and pink grapefruit, all touched with a hint of honey. Nectarine and pink grapefruit flavors seem made for each other on the plump but not soft palate, while the finish features excellent length and intensity. A benchmark Marlborough Sauvignon." ~ Wine Enthusiast
All three Seresin vineyards are managed organically, two being the only ones in all of Marlborough to be BioGro certified. Some 200 people apply annually for the jobs of hand-picking an impressive array of grape varieties – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Semillon, Gewürztraminer and Riesling -which are all hand-sorted before being whole-bunch pressed. Portions of the grapes are then naturally fermented using indigenous yeasts to give greater interest to the resulting wine. Out in the field, there are ‘cow pat pits' for batching up biodynamic preparations. Along with the manure, ingredients include valerian, nettle, chamomile, dandelion and oak bark.
