Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"The 2017 Seifried Winemakers Collection Nelson ‘Sweet Agnes’ Riesling is intensely scented with notes of candied citrus peel, fresh cut spring blooms and summer stone fruit. The palate has fine minerally acidity to cut through the fruit characters of dried apricots and marmalade. The wine has a long generous finish.

Using 100% Riesling fruit, the grapes were hand selected at the peak of ripeness with a large portion of the fruit shrivelled and raisined, caused by natural dehydration. The grapes were then gently pressed to release a very concentrated intensely flavoured juice. The grapes were picked, pressed and fermented in batches as grapes were selected during several passes through the vineyard.  The fermentation was initiated immediately and continued for about three weeks. During this time, the ferment parcels were monitored and tasted regularly. The young wine was then blended and stabilised before bottling in July 2017. The residual sugar in the wine is 153g/L."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Beautifully lifted and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows orange marmalade, lime peel, mango and baked fig characters. The palate is intensely flavoured and brightly expressed, delivering excellent fruit intensity with gorgeous sweetness and racy acidity. A wonderfully balanced sweet wine. At its best: now to 2021."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Seifried's most celebrated wine. The 2017 vintage is tight and youthful. Bright, light yellow/green, it is fresh and vibrant, with rich, peachy, honeyed flavours, ample sweetness and crisp, steely acidity. The 2018 vintage (5*) is already delicious. Bright, light yellow/green, it is rich and finely poised, with excellent concentration of citrusy, peachy, gently honeyed flavours, and a sweet (153 grams/litre of residual sugar), crisp, finely balanced finish. Drink now or cellar."

95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2016 Vintage)
"Late-harvested grapes were selectively hand-picked during several passes through the vineyard to select the ripest berries. Intense and luscious tropical fruit, apricot and orange zest flavours with little evidence of botrytis. A deliciously varietal wine that’s sweet but perfectly balanced with tangy acidity."


97/100 Decanter 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Lush, vibrant and rich with distinguished aromas and flavours of honey and apricot, peach, candied mango and sherbet. Sweet and high in acid with an outstandingly long finish. This is a gorgeous wine to serve with cheese, pâtés and light desserts. Will coast through and grow over the next decade."


95/100 Decanter 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"An array of rich lime, honey, white pepper, baked apricot, peach and petrol hints on the nose and palate. Sweet and heavenly with lime juice acidity ringing through it. This is absolutely gorgeous!"


4 Stars Cuisine Sweet Wine Tasting, October 2018
"A creamy style that is very well structured. Confected lime candy with notes of salted caramel and botrytis gives a rich, pure flavour with fine acidity and beautiful length."
