Seresin’s vines grow on a steep north-facing slope in Raupo vineyard, where the soils are dense and clay-based. The nose exhibits notes of ripe dark berry fruit, alongside hints of savory forest floor, rosemary and leather. The palate is concentrated, with deep earth, spice and hedgerow fruit characters, framed by fine, well-integrated tannins and a persistent, fresh finish.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2013 Raupo Creek Pinot Noir is beautifully scented of red cherries, pomegranate and Provence herbs with underlying forest floor, mushroom and earth hints. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly fruited with great intensity and a solid backbone of grainy tannins, finishing long and refreshing.
A lively red with a soft, cherry nose; good depth and texture; complex and layered with savory notes and bright acidity; one of Marlborough’s best.
