Sun and Moon Pinot Noir – 2012

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.

Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2012 Sun and Moon Pinot Noir is beautifully perfumed of lavender, cloves and violets over a core of red currents and red cherries with a waft of mossy bark. Light to medium-bodied, the intense red berry and earth flavors fill the mouth with plenty of lively acidity to boot and a good backbone of finely grained tannins, it finishes with great persistence and in provocative layers.
