The sentinel stone at the entrance to our Home Vineyard in Marlborough, New Zealand, signals the path to both our winery and our philosophy. The stone bears a subtle handprint, a symbol of strength, gateway to the heart, tiller of the soil and the mark of the artisan.

The certified organic fruit comes from selected parcels in the Seresin Home vineyard which surrounds the winery. The hand-picked grapes used for the 2008 Marama comes from our oldest Sauvignon Blanc vines and makes up the ripest portion of our Sauvignon Blanc harvest.

Expert Reviews

The 2008 Marama is the 13th vintage of this unique Sauvignon. It is 100% barrel fermented with wild yeast in 25% new oak and aged for 16 months. Presenting a moderate intensity of grapefruit, yeast and cedar notes, it has supporting notes of lemon curd, asparagus tips, straw and a whiff of dried leaves. Full bodied, this has great concentration without being overpowering. It has elegance, silkiness and is very long in the finish. Drink this one now to 2014+. Rating 92 - Drink by 2014+ Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (OCT/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The 2008 Marama has its own identity; richly textured it exhibits aromas of citrus and elderflower with a hint of honey-comb.

Palate

The palate is complex with flavours of melon, brioche, spice and a hint of marmalade. A tight and focused acidity creates a long, lingering finish.

Cellaring

This wine should develop well over the next eight years.
