100% organic Pinot Noir from the steep hill block of our clay rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard in Marlborough’s Omaka Valley, Marlborough.
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, 35% were new. Underwent natural malolactic fermentation during 17 months maturation, before being bottled unfiltered and unfined.
Made from the very best grapes, this is the purest expression of Pinot Noir that Seresin Estate can make. It is savoury and complex, crafted with ageing in mind. The supple tannins provide structure for rich and succulent fruit weight, creating a balance between power and elegance.
