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. – Description from AlexJelena

  • This CA girl tasted a pretty decent NZ sauv blanc at a gallery opening in SF last nite.  It was not an expensive wine... was a Koura Bay Awatere Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2009.  Looked it up... was abt. $12, nothing exceptional.  But it piqued my curiosity...Any recommendations for a wonderful NZ Sauv Blanc?  This one had lots of citrus, pineapple,...

  • Seresin Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Reserve 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Smells sweet and creamy with floral top notes to the tropical notes of cooked guava accented with a touch of herb. The entry shows good richness and balance, but the fruit drops off on the mid-palate of this soft, broad wine. Theres a touch of vanilla over the passion fruit and grapefruit tones that follow through on the modest finish. 86pts Read More

  • Seresin Chardonnay Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    With a nice balance of intense ripe fruits and wood spice balancing the nose, this adds notes of crème brûlée, dried fruits, and lightly honeyed, nutty accents with time in the glass. Smooth and well-integrated in the mouth and showing excellent complexity on the mid-palate even if the flavors are distinctly oak-driven. The fruit -- deep, rich, ... Read More

  • Seresin Pinot Noir Marlborough 2007

    Snoothrank:

    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 pi... Read More
