Seresin Chardonnay Marlborough 2005
"Our philosophy and stylistic direction with Chardonnay is to focus on the textural element of the palate rather than emphasising primary fruit characters. The cool temperatures in Marlborough work to retain fruit character and we want to use these characters to give more interest to the palate by fermenting warmer and using very natural techniques in our winemaking. The fruit was sourced from both our Home and Raupo Creek vineyards. The blend was fermented in French Oak utilising only indigenous yeasts. Following primary fermentation the wine was put through malolactic fermentation, which occurred naturally in barrel. "

Eine umfangreiche Palette feiner Fruchtnoten von vegetabilen, blumigen Aromen zu dezenten Ausbauaromen (Butter, Karamell, Nüsse) präsentiert sich im Glas. Das spannende Zusammenspiel zwischen Fruchtsäure und samtiger, süsslicher Textur macht diesen Chardonnay zum Erlebnis! Ein anhaltender, facettenreicher Sinneseindruck im Abgang setzt diesem Weisswein von SERESIN das berühmte Pünktchen auf das «i».
This dry, white wine is from the Marlborough region and is made from native yeasts if you can believe it. This adds to the complex, rich character to this chardonnay and certainly puts it in the camp of a more southern Burgundy white than one from New Zealand.
