He was Director of Photography on blockbuster movies such as Bugsy Malone, Midnight Express, City Hall and even some of the Harry Potter movies. These days Michael Seresin spends his time making blockbusters in the vineyard – like this Trophy & Gold medal winning 2018 release Chardonnay.
Thinking organics and wine and Seresin springs to mind. They have an almost obsessive approach to organically, hand crafted wine.
The vineyards are farmed biodynamically. That means soils are fed with animal manure, weeds and pests are consumed by cows, horses and chickens, and spraying vine leaves with teas made from local herbs and minerals.
That kind of attention to detail doesn’t get missed – this ’18 vintage was the Trophy for Champion Chardonnay and Gold medal winner at the NZ Organic Wine Awards 2020! Described as a style that’s got a “gorgeous bright golden hue, this Chardonnay screams elegance and texture. The nose is lifted with notes of fleshy stone fruits laced with brioche, and the palate is layered, creamy and complex yet still elegant, and is framed with focused acidity.”
