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. Organically and biodynamically grown, hand-tended and handpicked, the grapes from our estate are handmade into wines of passion, grace and spirit.
The hand-picked fruit comes from our clay-rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard and the Home vineyard which is made up of a variety of free draining Waimakiriri soils.

The 2010 Chardonnay Reserve offers notes of warm peaches, apple tart and cashews with hints of ginger, meal and buttered toast. Medium-bodied with a gorgeous creaminess to the texture, it fills the mouth with stone fruit and honey-nut flavors marked by crisp acid, finishing long. Drink it now through 2016+.
I tasted a few of Seresin’s single vineyard 2009 Pinot Noirs again this year, to check how they were developing now that they were entering their drinking window. In short, it is well worth waiting a year after release before readers consider drinking these wines! Rating 91+ Drink: 2012 - 2016 Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker.com #203 Oct 2012
Winery Tasting Notes
The complex nose displays aromas of caramelised citrus and gunsmoke, with toasty notes.
The palate is generous yet delicate, with a silken texture and a lingering finish.
This wine is drinking well now and has the potential to improve over the next seven years.
