Wine Enthusiast 91 points - This is textbook Pinot Noir executed to a high standard, from cherry and sous bois aromas to supple tannins and a silky finish. There’s ample roundness and concentration, and while the wine is fruit focused, it never seems confected, even if it turns slightly chocolaty on the finish. (Oct 2013)
Located in Marlborough, New Zealand, Seresin Estate was founded in 1992 by Michael Seresin, an internationally acclaimed cinematographer. Seresin produces wines from certified organic and biodynamic estate vineyards: Home Vineyard, located in the Wairau Valley that is planted on well draining Waimakariri soils; Tatou Vineyard is composed of alluvial shingle soils and also located in Wairau Valley; and the Raupo Creek vineyard in Omaka Valley with its clay rich soils. All fruit is hand-picked, and hand-sorted and whole cluster pressed. The wines are naturally fermented, using wild yeasts indigenous to the winery, to give greater complexity to the wines. Winemaker Clive Dougall has over 17 years of experience in the wine industry, both locally and internationally.
|The sentinel stone at the entrance to our Home Vineyard in Marlborough signals the path to both our winery and our philosophy. The stone bears a subtle handprint, a symbol of the individual and of creative endeavour; it represents our philosophy to work traditionally with natural elements and elicit a true Marlborough character in our wines and our extra virgin olive oils.
Organically and biodynamically grown, hand-tended and hand-picked, the grapes from our estate are transformed into artisan wines through gentle, traditional winemaking – wine of passion grace and spirit.
