90 points Wine Spectator: `Taut, lively and full of personality, with gooseberry and passion fruit flavors announcing the source clearly, hovering enticingly on the finish. Drink now.`

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.

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

Das Bouquet überzeugt mit Fülle, aber auch mit viel Fruchtaromatik. Im Gaumen zeigt der Sauvignon Blanc aus der Weinanbauregion Marlborough eine Gradlinigkeit und Typizität. Er ist dicht und wartet gleichzeitig mit viel Frucht auf. Der Abgang ist ausgewogen, anhaltend und vielschichtig: ein grosser Weisswein!

Farbe: helles Strohgelb; Bouquet: intensive Aromen von tropischen Füchten, Stachelbeeren, Grapefruit und Kräuternoten; Körper: sehr harmonisch, mit rassiger Säure, schöner Schmelz

Helles Strohgelb. Aromen von Stachelbeeren und Grapefruit mit einem Hauch von Zitronen und grünem Gras. Ein spritziger Wein mit einem langen und erfrischenden Abgang.

Dieser Wein zeichnet sich durch seine exotische Frucht, einem fülligen und ausgewogenen Körper sowie seiner Eleganz aus. Eine Création der jungen Oenologin Nadine, welche es zu entdecken gilt. Exotische Frucht, fülliger und weicher Körper
