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

yum! this wine is so tasty. i'm a big fan of all NZ Sauv Blancs, but this one was particularly fresh and snappy! (and btw, for anyone not familiar with NZ Sauv Blancs, they are a great wine for newbies. everyone loves them!)

Zingy cucumber, bell pepper and lemon zest nose that seems to pop right out of the glass. Quite refreshing flavors, full of fresh ripe acidity, lemons and limes, an herbal quality, basil maybe. Fresh and interesting!

Lots of crisp notes of cucumber and nuts, especially almonds, a dab of sweetness rounds out the rich and complex body, along with minerally citrus flavors, grassiness, peach, and melon.

Very grassy nose, with a touch of lemongrass. Prickling acidity, pears and peaches with a gooseberry finish. The finish has some minerality. A nice, complex sauvignon blanc.

I thoroughly enjoyed the powerful aroma the moment I opened the bottle. This was a tasty wine with a wonderful finish.

This wine was smooth with a little bit of creaminess finish. It was a powerful combination of citrusy fruits, floral aroma, and berries. This wine was great for its price!

Pale, green-tinged yellow. Captivating aromas of lemon, lime and crushed stone, lifted by violet and jasmine. Densely packed but vibrant and high-pitched, with superb intensity and lift to the floral and mineral flavors. Finishes long and gripping, with an impression of weightlessness. This makes the overwhelming majority of Marlborough sauvignons seem strictly commercial by comparison. A lot of wine for the price.

A very good example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, with more complexity, and greater length than the norm. Hand-harvesting, careful selection, and blending in 8% of Semillon makes the difference

The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from 21 separate plots, fermented with 50% wild yeasts and blended with 10% Semillon. An intense nose of cut grass, gooseberry and limestone leaps from the glass, the palate quite straightforward with crisp green fruits and a touch of herbaceousness towards the finish.

Bright and racy, with pretty lime and mineral flavors on a tart frame. A lively drink.
