The "Leah" Pinot is selected from various blocks of Seresin’s estate vineyards in the Southern Valleys sub-region of Marlborough. Hand sorted, wild fermented, 12 months in French oak (20% new). Dark, plummy fruit, warm earth, bracken, sage and spiced berry fruits. Mouth-filling texture and density with a nice savory component. Winemaker's Notes: "The fruit comes from our clay rich hillside Raupo Creek vineyard, the alluvial shingles of our Tatou vineyard and the Home vineyard. The fruit was hand-sorted before being de-stemmed and cooled, after a pre-fermentation soaking period the juice was allowed to warm and fermentation started with wild yeast. During fermentation the caps were hand-plunged daily. The wine was then left to sit on skins for two weeks for post ferment maceration; a total of four weeks was spent in contact with the skins. It was then drained and lightly pressed before being transferred to French barriques, of which approximately twenty percent were new. The wine went through natural malolactic fermentation during eleven months spent maturing in barrel, before it was bottled unfiltered and without fining in March 2012."
