There’s a honeyed overtone to the pear and citrus flavors, with plenty of spice and floral honeysuckle highlights on the crisp finish.  Drink now.

Seresin’s 2016 Sauvignon Blanc includes 5% Sémillon and 17% was fermented and aged in older French oak barriques to add complexity and interest. The wine offers a leafy component on the nose that recalls tomato or currant leaves, plus plenty of citrusy fruit and hints of red berries or pink grapefruit. The oak is subtle, but if it is noticeable, it’s in the silky texture on the medium-bodied palate and the finesse-filled, lingering finish.
