Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2007
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!)
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.
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!
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!
External Reviews for Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough
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.
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
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.
