Seresin Estate Rachel Pinot Noir 2012

100% organic Pinot Noir from the clay-rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard in the Omaka Valley, Marlborough, with a tiny amount also from the Tatou and Noa vineyards.

Fruit was hand-sorted, destemmed and cooled. After pre-fermentation steeping, the juice was warmed and fermented with wild yeast, and the caps hand-plunged daily. Left on skins for 2 weeks of post-ferment maceration, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to French oak barriques, 14% were new. Underwent natural malolactic fermentation during 15 months maturation, then bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Winemaker's Comments

Exhibits aromas of black cherry, truffle and chocolate. The palate is  concentrated and full with a dense core of rich fruit, alongside savoury spice and herbal notes, underpinned by silky-fine and mouth-coating tannins. Long on the finish, with a cleansing acidity, A poised, yet powerful wine.
