Fruit Day Wines

Today was an exciting day at Seresin Estate. Our winemaking team finalised three of our 2007 wines:

  • a very special 2007 Sauvignon Blanc we have created exclusively for ad-Bibendum, our distributor in Belgium and Holland, to celebrate their 10th anniversary
  • our 2007 Riesling - in our customary dry style
  • a 2007 Riesling in a new style for Seresin Estate - reflecting the background of our winemaker Clive Dougall who joined Seresin Estate for the 2006 vintage from Pegasus Bay.

Being a fruit day, it was a very good day to be tasting wines and we know the wines finalised yesterday will be special, building on the wonderful fruit from the low-yielding 2007 vintage.

"Fruit day?" I hear ytou ask ... it's a type of day characterised in the biodynamic calendar based on moon and planetary influences.

Check out the article in The Observer last year by UK wine writer Tim Atkin at the following link (,,1786074,00.html) for a fascintaing perspective on wines tasting different on different days depending on the phase of the moon.
