Tim’s Tasting Notes


2009 Seresin Estate Raupo Creek Pinot Noir, Marlborough

£25.99, 14%, Armit

The wines from this biodynamic estate in Marlborough are now among the best in the South Island. This is the pick of the current Pinot Noir releases, sourced from clay loam soils and showing an extra dimension of concentration, tannin and sap. It's savoury and sweet, with taut acidity, subtle oak and impressive vivacity, line and length. A wine that wouldn't look out of place in Burgundy.
