Winemaker Notes

Exhibits bright, fragrant berry-fruit aromas, interlaced with spice and herbal notes. The wine is focused and concentrated, with a succulent fruit core, framed by fine-grained tannins and a mouth-watering acidity. An elegant and understated style with immediate appeal, but structure to last. Named after Michael Seresin’s daughter, Leah.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 93
Decanter
Made from a blend of handpicked organic fruit (worked biodynamically) from three estate vineyards, yielding just two bottles per vine. It has great concentration and purity of ripe cherry fruit, showing lovely vibrancy and freshness allied to fine tannins and fresh acidity. Elegant drinking now but with the structure to age.
V 92
Vinous

A brooding, full style that offers a dark plum and savory interpretation of Marlborough Pinot Noir. Hailing from the richer soils of the Omaka Valley rather than the free-draining valley floor, there's more depth and substance here and a fine coating of powdery tannins. Yields are pretty low (six tons/ha) and the finish is filled with damson fruit. Satisfying and sumptuous but there's no shortage of acidity keeping things fresh and lengthy. Drinking well now to five years. Drinking window: 2021 - 2026

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Seductive scents of roses, black tea, strawberries and cherries mark the nose of the 2017 Leah Pinot Noir. Medium-bodied, dusty and cool, it's long on the finish, ending on notes of pomegranate-like tartness. Rating: 91+

Seresin Winery Video

Seresin Estate, located in Marlborough, New Zealand, was founded by Michael Seresin in 1992, and is one of the country’s first organic and biodynamic wine producers.

Tucked away in the folds of the Southern Valleys sub region, Seresin’s single estate vines hail from the clay & alluvial soils of the Raupo Creek Vineyard.

Certified BioGro organic and biodynamically farmed, all grapes are hand-picked. Wild yeast fermentation along with minimal intervention in the winery produces wonderful, unique and complex wines.

These resulting wines capture the essence of the vineyard’s energy and vibrancy, making every bottle of Seresin a genuine reflection of its provenance.

Seresin, Wine of Passion, Grace & Spirit.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
