Seresin Estate Chardonnay Reserve Organic 2018
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
A wine with a real sense of poise - concentrated yet restrained aromas of ripe pear, golden apple, a hint of tart greengage and finely-judged oak. It has breadth, richness, savour and complexity on the palate, balanced by firm acidity and salty mineral character. This can be enjoyed now, but it also will age gracefully.
Certified organic fruit is hand picked from two Biodynamic vineyards Raupo Creek and Noa. The producer tastes all Chardonnay barrels a year after vintage, selecting the best and most interesting to become the Reserve. These then spend another six months in old oak puncheons, gaining depth, complexity and integration.
