Full of concentration and poise with a broad mouthfeel, backed with firm acidity and salty minerality. The nose is savoury and complex with finely-balanced oak and just a hint of warm orchard fruit. Firm acidity and structure will allow the wine to age gracefully. Back to Seresin Estate Wine

Seresin Estate Reserve is a 100% organic Chardonnay from Seresin's Raupo Creek vineyard in the Omaka Valley area of Marlborough. Fruit was hand-sorted and whole bunch pressed straight to barrel. Each parcel was naturally fermented in 26% new French oak, and went through naturally occurring malolactic fermentation. After 11 months in oak, the wine was blended and transferred to puncheons for a further 5 months. Unfined and only lightly filtered. Full of concentration and poise with a broad mouthfeel, backed with firm acidity and salty minerality. The nose is savoury and complex with finely-balanced oak and just a hint of warm orchard fruit. Firm acidity and structure will allow the wine to age gracefully. Back to Seresin Estate Wine

"Toasty and rich but still fresh, Seresin's 2016 Chardonnay Reserve is a terrific effort. Pain grillé joins ripe peach and lemon curd on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied without being overly weighty, balancing size and refreshment in an ideal manner. Capping things off is a long, lingering finish that delivers nuances of cinnamon, clove, stone fruit and citrus. The 15% new oak is noticeable but in balance with the concentrated fruit. Drink this over the next few years."robertparker.com

Concentrated, with a broad mouthfeel, balanced by good acidity and salty minerality. Savoury and complex with finely-balanced oak and just a hint of warm orchard fruit.
