Raupo Creek Pinot Noir – 2011

Region: New Zealand


Estate grown grapes from organic and biodynamic vineyards are handpicked and transformed into artisan wines through gentle, traditional winemaking – wine of passion, grace and spirit. Acknowledging Seresin’s ongoing commitment to sound environmental practices as a winegrower, Seresin won the Marlborough District Council’s 2009 Marlborough Environment Award.


90 Points

Good medium red. Ripe aromas of strawberry, blackberry and licorice. Pliant and intense in the mouth, offering terrific inner-mouth floral lift and definition to the intense flavors of red fruits and spices. This very classy, cellarworthy pinot noir finishes with firm but sweet tannins and excellent length. (A second bottle, which I scored a point lower, was muted by oak on the nose and finished with dustier tannins.)
