We're big fans of New Zealand Pinot Noir and 'Leah' has to be one of our favourite discoveries of recent times. It first hits you with strawberry and red cherry flavours closely followed by rose and a hint of vanilla and toast on the finish, all carried by a lovely acidity throughout. Yummy.
Seresin Estate prides itself on biodynamic wine production, focussing on natural processes and quality over quantity. Owner Michael remains a passionate organic advocate, having left a life of working in film photography to open the winery. This wine in particular must hold a special place in his heart as he named it after his daughter.
When it comes to food pairing, 'Leah' is fairly flexible and will suit a number of red meats and vegetables, creamy cheese such as camembert or brie, and pork dishes (although care should be taken to avoid stronger sauces).
