Chardonnay Reserve 2015
93 points, “One of the best Marlborough Chards I can remember tasting!” – Wine Advocate
Seresin’s barrel-fermented Chardonnay Reserve is crafted using fruit from their Raupo Creek vineyard in Omaka Valley and is aged for 11 months in French oak. What comes out of those precious casks has the creamy nuttiness of toasted cashews and almonds, the combination of oak and grain you find visiting old Scottish whisky distilleries, tropical fruit, honey, lemon, smoke and a salty almost Chablis-esque minerality. This is something really rather special for the Chardonnay lover, especially if served alongside creamy dishes, romesco sauce, a cashew-based korma or buttery fish.
Established in the early 1990s, Seresin is one of New Zealand’s finest wine producers as well as a leading name in organic and biodynamic production. Cinematographer Michael Seresin (Bugsy Malone, Midnight Express, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Gravity) had his passion for wine ignited after exploring Italy during visits to his second home in the hills of Tuscany. Employing a traditional, gentle and philosophical approach to winemaking, everything on the Seresin estate is hand-tended and hand-harvested using as little intervention as possible. Based in the sunny heart of Marlborough, they aim to put more back into the soil than they take out, building strong vines and promoting biodiversity.
