2007 Seresin 'Memento' Riesling

A well known UK wine writer who visited us recently, described the 2007 Seresin 'Memento' Riesling as "the perfect mid-morning wine". Judging by the reaction to the wine at today's Marlborough Farmers' Market, he may be onto something. It was a big hit with those tasting it at the market this morning in fine, warm weather.

As well as the buzz of spring weather and the opening day of the market, sales were also helped by Karl du Fresne's write up in this morning's 'Sunday' magazine. He described it as an "exquistely pure, fragrant and delicate Germanic-style example" of New Zealand Riesling.

If you can't wait for dinner to try it, enjoy it anytime from brunch onwards.
