Seifried Estate Pinot Gris 2021

New Zealand / Nelson

Andy's Tasting Notes

Generous and richly textured with peach/apricot fruit, gentle lavender, honey and spice notes together with fragrant hints of candied orange/lemon.  Finishes long, clean and fresh.

Has a great affinity with smoky bbq vegetable, fish or chicken dishes.

The Seifried Estate range is the winery’s premium label. Fruit is harvested from vines in excess of eight years of age, and the style is pure and balanced.

Producer notes: The Pinot Gris was harvested from vineyard blocks comprising differing soils, micro-climates, and clones, as well as different aged vines. The parcels were harvested and fermented separately prior to blending at a much later stage. The resulting wine has a broad palate and is full-flavored, bringing a unique and complex spectrum of characters to the finished wine.

Producer Info

Since Hermann Seifried and his New Zealand wife Agnes first planted grapes in the Moutere Valley near Nelson, Seifried has grown to become one of New Zealand’s most sustainable family-owned wineries.

With 14 vinifera varieties, on two hectares of land, they began the South Island’s modern commercial wine industry. Hermann and Agnes were true pioneers, experimenting with what classical European varieties may do well in this untested climate and terroir. Today it has grown from very modest beginnings to become one of New Zealand’s most sustainable wineries, producing the very best Nelson has to offer. The site that Herman and Agnes chose for their new vineyards was perfect in terms of location. It is surrounded by mountains to the east, west and south (Richmond and Western Ranges) and the Tasman Sea to the north, which moderates the temperate climate throughout the year. The sunshine here was also a real draw-card, with an average of over 2,400 hours of sunshine a year, earning Nelson its reputation as the ‘Sunshine Capital of New Zealand’.

In 2016 the winery celebrated 40 years since the first harvest. The last four decades have seen significant change, with the New Zealand industry now recognised as world leading, particularly with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, but also for Syrah, Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. Today Seifried farm over 250 hectares of vineyards, across nine sustainably-accredited vineyard locations scattered throughout the Nelson region, and all of their three children are actively involved in the business.
