2018 Seresin Dry Riesling, Marlborough
In Appearance: Pale yellow.
On the Nose: notes of orange and lime sherbet.
Full Riesling spectrum of citrus fruit and citrus blossom.
On the Palate: The palate is very precise and fine boned, supported by the incredible focused acidity and beautiful mid palate texture, which was gifted by the time in barrels on fine lees. Great aging potential.
2018 will be remembered as being rather unusual for Marlborough, with a run of wet conditions following a period of warm weather. Fortunately our vineyards all fared well, with low yields and careful management ensuring a large proportion was harvested by the end of March. Above all, we will remember this vintage for its fast and furious nature – blink and you nearly missed it! However the resulting wines are showing a great deal of poise, elegance and subtlety. We are beyond excited to nurture them into the bottle and bring them to market.
