Seresin Estate Rachel Pinot Noir (750ml)
Seresin winery was inspired by Michael Seresin’s own connections and interests; a new world winery with an old world approach.
Wild yeasts that live in the vineyard ferment the grape juice into wine. Working this way does take a little more time, but the result is wine with added savouriness and with more mouth watering textures and flavours as well as a unique sense of place. All Seresin wines spend time in barrel or bottle before release. Good things come to those who wait.
The nose exhibits aromas of black cherry, truffle and chocolate. The palate is concentrated and full, with a dense core of rich fruit, alongside savoury spice and herbal notes, all underpinned by silky-fine and mouth coating tannins. Long on the finish, with a cleansing acidity, this is a poised, yet powerful wine.
Rachel is named after Michael Seresin’s mother. Made from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from all three estate vineyard sites. The vines were cropped to produce enough fruit for just one bottle per vine, the fruit was handpicked and completely destemmed before being fermented with wild yeast. It is certified organic and biodynamically grown and suitable for vegans as no dairy products or eggs used during production.
