Seresin is undoubtedly one of New Zealand’s leading wine estates. From its inception more than 20 years ago it has always been on the cutting edge of production with a focus on truly individual vine growing and winemaking by eschewing the likes of mechanical harvesters and chemical sprays. This is echoed in the estate’s powerful symbol of the hand gracing every bottle; a testament to the artisan nature of this traditional style of winemaking. Leading cinematographer, Michael Seresin founded the property in 1992 with the first vintage recorded in 1996. Now with 150ha under vine it farms both organically and biodynamically in Marlborough’s Omaka and Wairau Valleys. Certification for its organic and biodynamic status has been won from BioGro New Zealand and Demeter, respectively. These are notoriously difficult to obtain – feats reflecting the irreproachable commitment to quality by Seresin himself as well as Colin Ross, Estate Manager and Clive Dougall, Winemaker. The estate’s efforts focus on Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc but these are complemented by other varietal wines such as Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Riesling. The grapes for all of the estate wines are hand harvested and rigorously sorted by hand before being pressed. Bursting with outstanding fruit purity and length on the palate they have won accolades from leading wine writers around the globe, Jancis Robinson in particular.
