Seresin Pinot Noir Marlborough 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Herbal and slightly medicinal-smelling at first, this explodes in the glass with elegant aromas of citrus rind, herbs, and sweet red currant fruits, with light impressions of oak spice and earth rounding out the nose. Big on entry and then broadening out on the mid-palate. This is mouth-filling, with ripe, integrated tannins supporting cherry pit and lightly medicinal fruit that contrast with flashes of sweet berry fruit and blood orange. Lovely vibrancy and complexity. 92pts

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

Intensive, fruchtige Aromen (Himbeere, Cassis) strömen aus dem Glas. Im Gaumen präsentiert sich dieser Pinot Noir sowohl gehaltvoll, mächtig wie auch filigran, fruchtig. Es ist eine stilvolle Interpretation der Rebsorte mit viel Terroircharakter, der im Finale einen anhaltenden Sinneseindruck hinterlässt.
