What an exciting vintage this has been in Burgundy! With initial reports wondering whether we would have any Burgundy 2012, we are now finding ourselves in the enviable position of praising the wines for their immense concentration, depth and potential for ageing. With a fantastic combination of fruit and robust acidity, Burgundy 2012 is not only enjoyable in its youth, but will also reward those who enjoy some maturity in their wines and are willing to wait. This really is a vintage to watch over the years. The quantity/quality axis has held true once again and now is the time to start securing a few cases before it all goes. If you’re stuck for choice or unclear as to what is still available, we’re here to make things easier for you. There are some incredible wines out there and an informed choice will only enhance your experience with one of the world’s most iconic wine regions.
Seresin - Michael Seresin's passion for wine was ignited after exploring the wines that Italy has to offer during his visits to his second home in the Tuscan hills. After initially toying with the idea of establishing a winery in Italy during the early 1990s, his attention was soon diverted back to his homeland of New Zealand, having enjoyed the latest wines from Marlborough after a trip to the stunning Marlborough Sounds. The first vines of Seresin Estate were planted in the Wairau Valley in the early 1990s, the vineyard that would later become Seresin's Home vineyard. The maiden vintage in 1996 was a great success, and the vineyard holding was soon expanded with the purchase of Tatou vineyard in 2000, followed by the clay-rich Raupo Creek vineyard in Omaka Valley.
