Seresin Pinot Noir Marlborough Leah 2006

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 91Sourced mainly from their Raupo Creek Vineyard, fruit de-stemmed with the wine matured in French oak (25% new), the 2006 Leah Pinot Noir has a captivating nose that reminded me of the local woods, kicking autumn leaves around on a cold Sunday morning! The palate is medium-bodied, crisp with bright cranberry, wild berries, a hint of chocolate and a touch leafy on the very natural finish. Showing great individuality and soul, I would tend to drink this in its youth rather than cellar it long-term.Wine Tasting NotesThe nose exhibits aromas of cherry, red currants and raspberry, new leather and hints of spice. The palate is elegant with succulent red fruits layered over smoky oak, with supple tannins and a persistent finish. Drinking well now, but will improve over the next five years.

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
