Seifried Gewurztraminer 2021 White Wine – Nelson, New Zealand
Gewürztraminer is an early ripening variety with an aromatic, fragrant bouquet. It is naturally a low yielding vine which can produce wonderful concentration and flavour. After harvest the grapes were de-stemmed and left for a brief period of skin contact before pressing. The clear juice was inoculated with a pure yeast strain and then a cool, temperature-controlled fermentation began. After fermentation the wine had a period on yeast lees before it was racked, blended, clarified and stabilised prior to bottling in May 2021.
The 2021 Seifried Nelson Gewürztraminer is powerful and intense with notes of crystalised ginger, roses and Turkish Delight. The palate is well proportioned with 16g/L natural residual sweetness complementing the wines concentrated fruit flavours on the palate. Enjoy!
“Light, fresh Gewürztraminer with pretty white rose, Turkish Delight flavours. Nice purity and with a whisker of sweetness that is nicely balanced by gentle, fruity acidity to give a pleasantly dry-ish finish.”

Nelson’s oldest wine estate celebrated its 40th anniversary in December 2015.
Seifried Estate, with its beautiful wooden building surrounded by more than 250 hectares of vineyards, was started by Austrian-born Hermann Seifried and his New Zealander wife Agnes in 1973, when they planted their first grapes in the Moutere Valley near Nelson. They made their first wine in 1976. Seifried Estate is a proud member of the SWNZ (Sustainable Winegrowing NZ).
‘Seifried’ is the premium Estate label, with the fruit for these wines grown on established vines, usually in excess of eight years of age. The Seifried wines are often blends of fruit grown on several of the Estate vineyards, enabling production of wines with fantastic depth and complexity.
