Seresin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2021)

This is one of the region's most sophisticated, subtle and satisfying Sauvignons Blancs. It's also one of the most important, given its widespread international distribution and certified BioGro status. The wine (which includes 5 to 10 per cent Sémillon) is mostly fermented in tanks with indigenous yeasts, but a small part of the blend is fermented and lees-aged in seasoned French oak barriques and puncheons. Bright, light lemon/green, the 2021 vintage (5*) is ripely scented and mouthfilling, with strong, fresh, tropical fruit flavours, gently seasoned with oak, excellent complexity, lively acidity and a long finish. A distinctive wine, it should be at its best 2023+.
