Marlborough

Marlborough

Marlborough is, by far, the most important wine region of New Zealand and synonymous with Sauvignon Blanc, so much so that it has redefined how the world looks upon this variety. Debate will rage on whether this is a cool climate or not (it’s all relative, isn’t it?), but it certainly has a knack of making lemony, grassy ‘Savs’ which fill your senses immediately with a big rush of aroma and flavour. Pinot Noir is a close 2nd, with wines which can rival the best of any New World region.

Seresin is my pick of all the producers of Marlborough as they are far from the formulaic style which pervades in most other wines. Here there is a shift in attitude to making wines which shun the use of aromatic yeasts, and that ‘sweet-and-sour’ thing which appears in the more conventional wines and can be a little tiring after a while. Instead, these wines are built on a platform of complexity, elegance and a love for their environment.
