  • Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 13% vol, 37.5cl

    Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 13% vol, 37.5cl

    NZW20

    The grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to 15 years bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour.

     

    The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavour and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact.  Fermentations were carried out at low temperatures and when all tanks had completed fermentation they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled.

    Lovely pale yellow. Tropical melon and pineapple aromas, passion fruit and lifted citrus aromas. A mouth-filling wine packed with fruit sweetness balanced by mouth-watering acidity and a fresh, zesty, lingering finish.

  • Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Fairfields, Marlborough, 13% vol, 75cl

    Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Fairfields, Marlborough, 13% vol, 75cl

    NZW19

    A well made Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.

     

    Very pale in the glass, the nose has aromas of white peach, nectarine and cut green pepper. The palate is dry with stone fruit flavours, good acidity and a nice long, persistent finish. Not too full on “fruit salad” as is often the case with NZ Sauvignon Blanc.

  • “Old Coach Road” Unoaked Chardonnay 2015, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13% vol, 75cl

    “Old Coach Road” Unoaked Chardonnay 2015, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13% vol, 75cl

    NZW01

    From Seifried’s Rabbit Island Vineyard which is situated on a wide river flat. The soil is gravelly sandy loam, which is very sandy and free draining. These vineyards are about 1.5 kilometres from the sea, which helps moderate temperatures.

     

    Fermented in stainless steel tanks to capture the natural tropical fruit characters of the grape variety, without influence from oak.

     

    Bright and fresh with white peach, apricot and floral aromas on the nose. The palate has ripe fruit entry and very clear, clean fruit characters which linger on the long finish.

  • Grüner Veltliner 2014, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 12% vol, 75cl

    Grüner Veltliner 2014, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 12% vol, 75cl

    NZW10

    Pioneers of Nelson winemaking, Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted their first vineyards in 1973. Today Seifried Estate is one of New Zealand’s leading family owned wineries.

     

    Grüner Veltliner is the famous aromatic grape variety from Austria (Hermann Siefried’s homeland).
    Fruit is from Seifried’s Brightwater & Edens Road Vineyards. Here the soil is very poor and stony and water and nutrient levels are low. This helps to restrict the plants vigour and to crop at low levels.  To further enhance the aromatics, leaves were removed to allow light penetration and air movement around the grapes. The Brightwater vineyard is situated 15km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond Ranges.

     

    The “soil” is a combination of rocks and boulders, which is very hard on the farm equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun, and ripening the Grüner Veltliner fruit.
    This 2014 Grüner Veltliner is fine and gently structured. The nose has delicate floral notes and mellow stone fruit elements. Palate entry is very enticing with white pepper notes and summer stone fruits. The finish is off dry and well proportioned with lovely smooth fruit on the palate.

  • Pinot Gris 2015, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 13% vol, 75cl

    Pinot Gris 2015, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 13% vol, 75cl

    NZW21

    These grapes were sourced from five different vineyard locations within the Marlborough region.

     

    The grapes were harvested, crushed, and pressed with minimal skin contact. The clarified juice was then cool fermented to optimise varietal expression, flavour and intensity. There was no oak used.

     

    Pale straw colour with wonderfully lifted aromatics of pear, ripe apples, honeysuckle, and spices. The palate has a cocktail of fruit flavours with pear, citrus, passion fruit amongst others. The wine has well balanced fruit sweetness, rounded acidity and a clean, fresh finish.

  • Riesling 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13% vol, 75cl

    Riesling 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13% vol, 75cl

    NZW02

    Pioneers of Nelson winemaking, Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted their first vineyards in 1973. Today Seifried Estate is one of New Zealand’s leading family owned wineries.


    Seifried Riesling is a blend from both Seifried’s Brightwater and Redwood Valley Vineyards. The Brightwater fruit delivers powerful varietal floral characters and a real fruit purity, while the Redwood Valley fruit brings more textual components to the palate. The combination of the two vineyard parcels gives a greater wine than a single site alone.


    The wine shows floral characters with appealing flinty notes and aromas of green apples and grapefruit. The palate reflects these flavours with a fine mineral acidity balancing a hint of sweetness on the long finish.

  • “Aotea” Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    “Aotea” Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    NZW18

    Pioneers of Nelson winemaking, Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted their first vineyards in 1973. Today Seifried Estate is one of New Zealand’s leading family owned wineries.

     

    Aotea represents a selection of wines which the Seifried winemaking team consider to be the very best of the best. The fruit is harvested from single vineyard Estate grown vines. The wines offer texture while maintaining the varietal character of the grape – wines with depth and finesse.

     

    Aotea Sauvignon Blanc is from vines grown in an extremely stony area of the Edens Road vineyard which is some 15 km from the coast and sheltered from the south by the Richmond Ranges. Water and nutrient levels are low which helps Seifried to restrict the plants vigour and to crop at low levels.

     

    Aromatic and fresh Sauvignon Blanc flavours were encouraged prior to vintage through careful canopy management – a significant proportion of the vines leaves were removed to allow light penetration and air movement around the fruiting zone. The fruit was de-stemmed and pressed immediately after harvest and a cool fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks to retain the clean, fresh aromatic fruit characters.

     

    The 2015 Aotea Sauvignon Blanc is a single tank of Sauvignon Blanc which really impressed the Seifried winemakers and cellar team from the start. Fresh blackcurrant and ripe grapefruit notes come through on the wine. The acidity is bright, ripe and minerally to balance fruit concentration.

  • “The Trinity” 2013, Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, 13% vol, 75cl

    “The Trinity” 2013, Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, 13% vol, 75cl

    NZR12

    77% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc & 3% Tempranillo.

     

    The grapes are sourced from vineyards predominantly in the Gimblett Gravels along with some from the larger Hawkes Bay region.  The soils are deep river gravels, left by the Ngaruroro River as it changed course over many thousands of years.  Their low fertility, give small crops with highly concentrated flavours and aromas. Trinity Hill sources fruit from four of their own vineyard sites within the Gimblett Gravels sub-region.

     

    The grapes were gently de-stemmed prior to fermentation. Colour and tannins were extracted by gentle daily pumping over. The skin maceration was extended for up to three weeks following fermentation to soften and integrate the tannins. Following 10 months ageing in a combination of small French oak and stainless steel tanks, the individual varieties were blended to create the ideal marriage of the components.

    The leather and plum aromas of the Merlot combine with spice and redcurrant characters of Cabernet Franc. Cassis aromas and structural backbone are provided by Cabernet Sauvignon. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.
