Seresin Chardonnay Marlborough 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

With a nice balance of intense ripe fruits and wood spice balancing the nose, this adds notes of crème brûlée, dried fruits, and lightly honeyed, nutty accents with time in the glass. Smooth and well-integrated in the mouth and showing excellent complexity on the mid-palate even if the flavors are distinctly oak-driven. The fruit -- deep, rich, and apricoty -- is strong enough to balance the oak but does turn a bit heavy on the finish. 89pts

Michael Seresin was born in Wellington, New Zealand, but left in the 1960s, when sheep, not grapevines, covered the Wairau Plains. He settled in Italy, where he was captivated by Italian food and wine culture, and began his career as a cinematographer. Over time Michael's interest in wine developed into a passion. In the early 1990s after investigating opportunities to start a winery in Italy, he became aware of the quality wines starting to emerge from his homeland. After visiting Marlborough, and falling in love with the Marlborough Sounds, Michael decided to purchase a home there, followed by the purchase of some land in the Wairau Valley, which became Seresin's Home vineyard. Planting of vines began immediately, followed by the importation and planting of Tuscan olive varieties and significant plantings of natives. Seresin's first vintage was in 1996. In 2000 the Tatou vineyard was purchased, a year later land in the Omaka valley was aquired for development into our Raupo Creek vineyard. Read less
