Seresin Estate Rachel Pinot Noir 2012

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

Hand-sorted fruit was 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, drained, lightly pressed and transferred to French oak barriques, 14% new. Underwent natural malolactic fermentation during 15 months maturation. 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 cleansing acidity, this is a poised, yet powerful Pinot Noir.
