Seresin Marama Sauvignon Blanc 6pk 2015
Cinematographer Michael Seresin’s desire to create high quality wine in the most natural way possible led to the rise of Seresin Estate in the early 1990s – a wine estate that has ever since followed the principals of biodynamic and organic farming and winemaking. Allowing the wines a little extra time, not only adds savouriness, mouth-watering textures and flavours, but also shows the unique sense of place the wines come from.
Seresin Marama Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Hand-picked, certified organic grapes from the Noa vineyard's oldest vines. Whole-bunch pressed, wild yeast, fermented and aged on lees for 18 months in French oak barriques. Very complex nose is very unlike Sauvignon Blanc! Broad, rich nose with great intensity with the oak – just – submerged by the fruit. An ambitious wine that some will find too rich – certainly if they are expecting a typical Marlborough Sauvignon – but this could be a great challenge for food and wine matchers. It definitely deserves food. Quite chewy even now! But it tastes as though it might tip into oiliness eventually.
