Wine Weekend

We were pleased to be part of the Marlborough Wine Weekend this past weekend. Along with 34 other Marlborough wineries, we poured a number of our wines for guests - consumers, wine writers and restaurateurs from around New Zealand. Seresin's 2005 Chardonnay Reserve, 2006 Marama, 2006 Pinot Gris, 2006 Leah Pinot Noir and 2007 Sauvignon Blanc all made appearances over the weekend. The Seresin 2005 Raupo Creek Single Vineyard Pinot Noir was selected as one of 3 Marlborough wines in an international tasting of Pinot Noir.

Tastings were held in each of Marlborough's distinct sub-regions illustrating the different characteristics typical of those areas - picturesque settings adding to the memorability of the ocassion and etching the differences in flavours firmly on the mind and palate.
Guests enjoyed fine food prepared by Marlborough's Chris Fortune and Martin Bosley from , Martin Bosley's Yacht Club in Wellington - New Zealand's Cuisine magazine's 2007 Restaurant of the Year.
