Seresin Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2020)

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 casks. The 2020 vintage (4.5*) is a youthful wine, still unfolding. Bright, light lemon/green, it is full-bodied, with strong, vigorous, tropical fruit flavours, showing good complexity, that build well to a fresh, dry, lengthy finish.
