Seresin Marlborough Chardonnay Reserve (2021)

Finesse is the keynote quality of this organically certified wine. Already approachable, but likely to be long-lived, the savoury, youthful 2021 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Raupo Creek Vineyard, in the Omaka Valley, hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts, and lees-aged for 15 months in French oak barriques and puncheons (50 per cent new). Bright, light yellow/green, with a fragrant, slightly smoky bouquet, it has lively acidity, fresh, intense, peachy, citrusy flavours, and yeasty, mealy, biscuity notes adding impressive complexity. Best drinking 2024+.
