Seresin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022
5 STARS: Michael Cooper
4 STARS: Yvonne Lorkin, WineFriend
"This is one of the region's most sophisticated, subtle and satisfying Sauvignons Blancs. It's also one of the most important, given its widespread international distribution and certified BioGro status. The wine (which includes 5 to 10 per cent Sémillon) is mostly fermented in tanks with indigenous yeasts, but a small part of the blend is fermented and lees-aged in seasoned French oak barriques and puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, the 2021 vintage is ripely scented and mouthfilling, with strong, fresh, tropical fruit flavours, gently seasoned with oak, excellent complexity, lively acidity and a long finish"

"If jalapeños are your jam then this certified organic, biodynamically-crafted Sauvignon Blanc is going to seriously spin your wheels. Grown in Seresin’s Raupo Creek vineyard, fermented using naturally occurring, wild yeasts and matured in a mixture of old oak vessels before being blended with a 9% splash of Semillon (sem-ee-yon), it’s layered with lime, freshly-baled hay, jalapeño, bruised basil and green apple goodness."
- Yvonne Lorkin
Brimming with notes of passionfruit and ripe exotic fruits, intertwined with rich savoury notes. The inclusion of Semillon, natural fermentation and aging on lees in oak have all aided in creating a complex, stylish Sauvignon Blanc that walks the fine line between complexity and drinkability. Bone dry, textural and supported by vibrant acidity on the finish.
