Gold Medal – AWC Vienna 2020, Austria


Aotea represents the very best from the Seifried winemaking team. Usually destined off-shore, we have been offered a parcel of this delicious Sauvignon Blanc at a very, very attractive price. Past vintages have picked up a slew of awards and it is appreciated around the world – we certainly agree – this has balance and a depth of flavour not usually associated with Sauvignon Blanc. This has to be one of the best Sauvignon Blanc buys in the shop at present. 

The 2020 Aotea Sauvignon Blanc by the Seifried Family is from their Rabbit Island vineyard. It is pungent and tropical, showing notes of snow peas, white flesh peach and passionfruit. Gentle minerally acidity balances the fruit weight and concentration on the palate leaving lingering flavours of passionfruit and citrus.


Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"The 2020 Aotea by the Seifried Family Sauvignon Blanc is pure and varietal. White flesh nectarine, dried hops and passionfruit flavours come through on the nose. The palate is generous with appealing mineral notes and lingering flavours on the palate."


94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2020 Vintage)
"Crisp, vibrant sauvignon blanc with Rose's lime juice, passionfruit and gooseberry flavours. Impressive purity and power, with an ethereal texture and lingering finish."


Reviews for the 2019 vintage below…


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"The classy 2019 vintage is based on ‘the very best fruit harvested from our family vineyard’. Due for release in early 2020, it is a powerful, punchy wine, weaving tropical-fruit and herbaceous flavours, crisp and intense. Highly aromatic and full of youthful vigour, with a long, basically dry finish (4.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), it should be at its best mid-2020+."


91/100 Decanter, May 2020 (2019 Vintage) 
"The Aotea range is Seifried's pinnacle of production, the fruit for this wine sourced from the Rabbit Island vineyard 1.5km from the sea. It sees no oak, allowing the ripe apricot, zippy lemongrass and grassy green characters to shine, which linger on the long, tropical finish."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

  • 5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
