Seifried Riesling 2020 White Wine – Nelson, New Zealand
The combination of the two vineyard parcels blended together gives a greater wine than a single site alone. The Redwood Valley fruit brings more textural components to the palate while the Brightwater fruit delivers varietal floral characters and a real fruit purity.
Delicate fruit flavours and aromas were retained from the vineyard using careful canopy management and the grapes were picked at optimal ripeness in good condition. Fruit was de-stemmed and pressed immediately after harvest and a cool fermentation was initiated in stainless steel tanks to retain the clean aromatic fruit characters. The wine was blended and stabilised in September 2020.
The 2020 Seifried Riesling is bright and lively with lemon-lime, subtle petals and green apple notes on the nose. The palate is succulent yet beautifully balanced with taut minerally acidity, leaving a long lingering finish on the wine.

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.
