  • Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 12% vol, 37.5cl

    Sauvignon Blanc 2017, Kim Crawford, Marlborough, 12% 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.

  • Grüner Veltliner 2016, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 12% vol, 75cl

    Grüner Veltliner 2016, 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 2016 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.

  • “Old Coach Road” Pinot Noir 2016/17, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    “Old Coach Road” Pinot Noir 2016/17, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    NZR11

    The Pinot Noir is from Seifried’s Brightwater and Rabbit Island Vineyards.

     

    Brightwater Vineyard is situated 15 km 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.

     

    Rabbit Island vineyards are situated on a wide river flat. The soil is made up of gravelly sandy loam and free draining. The water table is relatively high ensuring adequate underground water.

    The grapes were picked and then underwent a five day cold maceration period before being inoculated for fermentation. The cap was plunged 2-3 times daily during fermentation. A further 3-6 days of skin contact followed the fermentation period before the wine was drained to oak barrels for an immediate malolactic fermentation and ageing.

    The Old Coach Road Pinot Noir is warm and varietal. Summer berry fruits, notes of plum and gentle savoury spices define the nose and palate. The wine has a long, warm, generous finish that lasts on the palate.

  • “The Trinity” 2014, Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    “The Trinity” 2014, Trinity Hill, Hawkes Bay, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    NZR12

    55% Merlot, 17% Tempranillo, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8 % Malbec & 7% Syrah (Shiraz).

     

    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 14 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 red fruit characters of Tempranillo and Malbec. Cassis aromas and structural backbone are provided by the Cabernet Franc. Richness and soft, ripe tannins make a serious yet eminently drinkable wine.

  • “Aotea” Sauvignon Blanc 2016/17, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13% vol, 75cl

    “Aotea” Sauvignon Blanc 2016/17, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 13% 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.

     

    Very pale in the glass, tropical melon and lime aromas come through on the nose. The palate is full and flavoursome, and packed with varietal fruit layers. A well balanced palate with refreshing mineral acidity leaves a long lasting impression.

    Pinot Noir 2015, Seifried Estate, Nelson, 14% vol, 75cl

    NZR1

    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.

     

    The majority of the fruit in the 2015 Seifried Pinot Noir comes from their Rabbit Island Vineyards which are only about 1.5 km from the sea. The Pinot vines are now over twenty years old, and showing great maturity and depth of flavour in the fruit. The parcels of grapes were picked incrementally at the peak of flavour and phenolic ripeness, which occurred during April. The de-stemmed fruit had a three – five day cold maceration period before individual parcels were inoculated with selected yeasts for fermentation. Throughout fermentation plunging occurred twice daily and was tapered off to once daily during the five – six day post-fermentation maceration. The young wine was drained to new, one and two year old French barriques for malolactic fermentation and barrel ageing for 12 months.

    The 2015 Seifried Pinot Noir is bright and varietal with lifted berry notes and sweet violets on the nose. The palate has ripe fruit entry and smooth velvety tannins wrapping around the berry and plum characters a long smooth mellow finish lingers.
