Vintage 2017

2017 was a memorable and challenging vintage. We had a wonderful warm start to the growing season, with good soil moisture helping the vines to grow well. We then experienced cold temperatures during flowering, resulting in lower yields and smaller bunches in our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The temperatures never really soared and we will remember this vintage as having one of the coldest growing seasons, coupled with challenging rain events just before and during harvest.

Harvest

The hand-print was the first signature, the first form of art created by man and, for us, it is a symbol or our organic and biodynamic philosophy. All Seresin Estate wines are hand-tended, hand-picked and selected in the vineyard. Working this way does take a little more time, but gentler handling of the grapes allows us to nurture wines to express a unique sense of place.
