SERESIN ESTATE CHARDONNAY 2016Seresin
Seresin Estate is in Marlborough which is in the north of the South Island in NZ. Marlborough is famous for it’s Sauvignon Blanc but they also make delicious Chardonnay & Pinot Noir too. Michael Seresin was a cinematographer (Bugsy Malone, Midnight Express, Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban, Gravity and many others) who decided to create a winery in the early 1990’s in the most natural way possible without compromising on quality.
The Seresin Estate Chardonnay is an appealing wine on the nose, with notes of citrus, toasted almond and apple. The palate is focused and bright, medium to full bodied, with hints of grapefruit, nectarine and peach. The acidity is firm, giving backbone to the soft orchard-fruit core and carrying through to a long fragrant finish.
Hand-picked fruit, whole-bunch pressed, oaked, lightly filtered and bottled without fining, certified organic and biodynamic, vegan-friendly.
