Description

"Greater concentration and complexity than the regular label with similar peach and tree fruit flavours but more oak and nutty yeast lees influence. It has a seductively soft, rich and creamy texture with a lingering finish. Very attractive chardonnay" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2017

"The best barrels of chardonnay are selected one year after vintage for the Reserve label, which then spends another six months in oak. Ripe peach flavours with plenty of spicy oak and nutty yeast lees influence. A rich wine with a seductively soft texture” Gourmet Traveller Wine Top 100, Jul 2017

"Seresin'sbarrel-fermented 2015 Chardonnay Reserve saw 26% new oak, which has integrated into the wine in a beautiful way. There's the subtle nuttiness of toasted grain (and maybe just a hint of cashew) blended with rich, ripe, yet citrusy fruit flavors. It's medium to full-bodied yet seems almost weightless, gliding easily across the palate into an extended finish. One of the best Marlborough Chards I can remember tasting!” Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, Issue 235, Mar 2018

The Chardonnay Reserve is a wine full of concentration and poise. It has a broad mouthfeel, backed with firm acidity and salty minerality. The nose is savoury and complex, with finely-balanced oak and just a hint of warm orchard fruit. This wine will age gracefully.

A cool start to the year, with some late frosts, but the weather was settled for flowering and fruit set. The summer was warm and very dry, resulting in berries and bunches being smaller than average. Harvest took place in good conditions, resulting in fruit which showed aromatic ripeness as well as a balanced, fresh acidity.

Certified organic fruit was hand-picked from the rich, clay-based slopes of our biodynamically certified Raupo Creek vineyard in the Omaka Valley.

The fruit was hand-sorted and whole-bunch pressed straight to barrel. Each parcel was naturally fermented in French oak, 26% of which was new, and went through naturally occurring malolactic fermentation. After 11 months in oak, the Reserve wine was blended and transferred to old French puncheons for another five months. The wine was not fined and only lightly filtered before bottling.
