Seresin 2018 Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough, New Zealand
Brimming with concentrated ripe aromas of warm autumnal interlaced with savoury notes, this Sauvignon Blanc shows the full spectrum of flavours. Characterized by striking the perfect balance between complexity and drinkability, this Sauvignon Blanc is highly textured and, above all, delicious and poised. Showing a positive effect from extended aging on lees and barrel aging, wild yeast and a splash of Sémillon.
Six parcels of fruit, from across our two vineyards, were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice was settled naturally then transferred to either a small stainless steel vessel or old French oak vessel, whereby each parcel undertook and completed fermentation naturally. After a long period of fermentation (8-16 weeks) each parcel was racked and topped, with a small addition of SO2. The parcels then remained on lees for 9 months, then were blended, stabilised and filtered. A small portion of Sémillon (8%) is included in the blend, the portion of barrel fermentation and ageing is 15%.
