2009 Seresin Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
Twenty-nine different parcels of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon from the different vineyard blocks were pressed and then fermented separately so that we had a greater range of options when creating the final blend. Approximately eighty percent of the final blend was fermented using wild yeast for added complexity and texture. The Semillon and approximately ten percent of the Sauvignon have been fermented in aged French barriques.
DescriptionThis Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of grapefruit and lime underpinned by a chalky mineral complexity. The palate is finely textured with gooseberry, zesty citrus and mineral flavours combined with a slight creaminess. A firm acidity helps to draw out the finish. This wine is drinking well now but will develop well over the next five years showing great concentration with evolving truffle and caramel characters.
