2014 Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $25+)
Once again a portion of barrel matured wine and a little semillon added to the mix, this has a sophisticated nose with dried flowers, meadow hay and citrus fruits, gently complex and enticing. The palate delivers a powerful, driving citrus-focused impression, dry and long, handy structure too. Drink now and up to 2020.
Organic/biodynamic Sauvignon Blanc, with 15% fermented in aged French barriques to build texture and complexity. The wine does show some nutty yeast lees characters, although it is still fruit dominant with peach, melon, spice, anise and a subtle citrus influence. Quite a rich, complex wine with character.
One of the most serious, complex and authentically made NZ Sauv Blancs on our shelves; now at the new and improved price of $19.99! (Ryan Woodhouse - K&L NZ Wine Buyer) Winemaker's Notes: "Blended from several parcels of Sauvignon Blanc from across our three different vineyard sites, as well as a small volume of Semillon, this is a true reflection of Seresin Estate in a bottle. Subtle on the nose with warm notes of ripe yellow stone-fruit, soft passion fruit and a chalky-mineral complexity. The palate is layered and finely-textured, with ripe gooseberry, tropical and citrus notes, framed by a mouth-watering acidity, which creates a persistent finish. Certified organic and biodynamically grown Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. No dairy products or eggs used during production."
