Seresin Leah Pinot Noir 2017
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Region: Marlborough, New Zealand
Appreciated by most Marlborough Pinot Noir Organic Wines drinkers.
A fresh, fruity pinot noir with elevated intensity of ripe dark cherry, red plums, charred wood, star anise and baking spices. A vibrant and well concentrated wine that is offering great value for money.
"2017 was a memorable and challenging vintage. We had a wonderful warm start to the growing season, with good soil moisture helping the vines to grow well. We then experienced cold temperatures during flowering, resulting in lower yields and smaller bunches. The harvest itself was fast and furious, one of the most compact we have ever experienced with challenging rain events just before and during harvest. The resulting wines having strong natural acidity and intense fruit flavours from the colder season.
The large majority of the fruit comes from the clay-rich hillside of the Raupo Creek Vineyard, which is located in the Omaka Valley. A small portion comes from the Noa vineyard grown on Waimakariri alluvial soils, located in the Wairau Valley."
The fruit was hand-picked, destemmed and cool soaked in tank. The must was then warmed and fermented with wild yeast, and the caps hand-plunged daily during fermentation. The wine was left on skins for 4-5 weeks, then drained, lightly pressed and transferred to aged French oak barriques. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during 11 months maturation, before it was bottled lightly filtered and unfined.
