Overview

The warm slopes of our Raupo vineyard in the Omaka Valley are home to some of our most important Chardonnay vineyards, where the vines respond well to the combination of cool clay soils and the exposure to the sun.

Vintage:

The 2016 winegrowing vintage at Seresin Estate will be remembered for a challenging cold start with a spectacular long summer. A very long and constant frost fighting season ensured the team were under pressure from the start. Towards the end of January we were predicting a later harvest than normal, but an intense long summer followed by a dry harvest period enabled us to deliver the fruit on-time, intact and without stress.

The harvest itself was fast and furious, one of the most compact we have ever experienced.

Winery Tasting Notes

The Seresin Estate Chardonnay is an appealing wine on the nose, with notes of citrus, toasted almond and apple. The palate is focused and bright, with hints of grapefruit, nectarine and peach. The acidity is firm and linear, giving backbone to the soft orchard-fruit core and carrying through to a long fragrant finish..
