More information on wine critics and ratings

We taste all our Chardonnay barrels a year after vintage, selecting the best and most interesting to become our Reserve. These then spend another six months in old oak puncheons, gaining depth, complexity and integration. 2018 will be remembered as being rather unusual for Marlborough, with a run of wet conditions following a period of warm weather. Fortunately our vineyards all fared well, with low yields and careful management ensuring a large proportion was harvested by the end of March.

Above all, we will remember this vintage for its fast and furious nature – blink and you nearly missed it! However the resulting wines are showing a great deal of poise, elegance and subtlety. 

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2016)
Toasty and rich but still fresh, Seresin's 2016 Chardonnay Reserve is a terrific effort. Pain grillé joins ripe peach and lemon curd on the nose, while the palate is full-bodied without being overly weighty, balancing size and refreshment in an ideal manner. Capping things off is a long, lingering finish that delivers nuances of cinnamon, clove, stone fruit and citrus. The 15% new oak is noticeable but in balance with the concentrated fruit. Drink this over the next few years.

A deep purple-ruby color. Nice complexity of aromas with red fruits, blackberry liqueur, touches of incense, and notes of mint and cedar sap. The palate a continuation of the nose, suave and intense, with a nice mineral tension characteristic of great limestone terroirs. A fresh finish and an extended length which reveals a great aging aptitude.

On the palate there is a vigor and liveliness to the wine and, as the aromas suggest, intense complexity and completeness. Its equilibrium enables the wine to show well young but at the same time it has an enormous potential for ageing.
