Seresin's 'Sexy' Sav

Writing in the latest issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller, Max Allen has selected our 2008 as one of 20 'Sexy Sauvignon Blancs'. He writes: "Seresin's Marlborough vineyards are certified organic and run along biodynamic lines. As well as the trademark regional savvy characters - attractive herbaceous aromas, crisp acidity - there's also an uncommon depth of grape-pulply texture and satisfaction."

Meanwhile, Ralph Kyte-Powell gave the same wine 4.5 stars in The Age newspaper (Epicure, Uncorked, 6 January 2009). "Does a light veneer of nutty oak work with sauvignon blanc? Only when it's very subtle, and Seresin shows the way. With 15 per cent fermented in old oak and 40 per cent made with wild yeasts, the result has complexity, length and presence. Herbaceous and tropical fruit is woven through with nutty, almondy notes, and there's a lovely savoury aftertaste."
