Seresin Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 6pk 2011
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 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2011
Top vintages are great wines. From the oldest vines in the Home Vineyard, near Renwick, in the Wairau Valley - pruned to produce less than half the normal crop - it is hand-picked and fermented with indigenous yeasts, mostly in tanks (5 per cent of the 2011 vintage was barrel-femented). The 2011 is a classic cellaring style, with real drive and a sense of youthful vigour. Mouthfilling (14.5 per cent alcohol), it has tight, concentrated, ripe quince and pear flavours, very pure and vibrant, the barest hint of oak, and good acid spine.
