Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"The 2021 Seifried Nelson Sauvignon Blanc is vibrant and concentrated with intense tropical fruit weight, hop characters and beautiful crisp minerally acidity running the palate. Enjoy this beauty! 2021 was another cracker vintage in Nelson, although yields are devastatingly light due to spring frost, unsettled flowering weather and Boxing Day hail!."
95/100 NWWA 2022 (2021 Vintage)
"Their story began in the early '70s when Austrian-born Hermann Seifried and his Kiwi wife Agnes hand-planted vines in sunny Nelson, now a powerhouse in the region successfully run alongside their three children. Showing lifted aromas of passionfruit, snow pea and apricot, this is mouth-filling and texturally satisfying with bright fruit intensity and lively mouthfeel."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2021 (2021 Vintage)
"This is terrific, showing lifted aromas of passionfruit, kiwifruit, jalapeno and lime peel on the nose, followed by a concentrated palate offering excellent fruit power and persistency. Gorgeously expressed with a lengthy delicious finish. At its best: now to 2024."
