Seresin Estate saw the potential of all of the aromatics from the Raupo vineyard and set out to make a traditional Alsatian field blend. By the end of March, there came a time where all three aromatic varietals – Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewürztraminer were ripe, so they hand harvested each varietal and combined the fruit in the field. They then transported the grapes to the winery whereby it was whole bunch pressed. The juice was left to settle naturally, then transferred to a mixture of old neutral puncheons and barriques to undertake fermentation naturally. A long, consistent fermentation took place taking 3 months. Each barrel then had a small sulphur addition and was topped then left to rest for an additional three months, stirring occasionally. Selected barrels and puncheons were then combined into a stainless steel tank to stabilise and filter prior to bottling.
A harmonious blend of three perfumed white grape varieties that oozes yellow peach juice, freshened by citrus and exhales an alluring scent of white flowers.
