Apart from Neudorf, Nelson doesn’t have too many house hold names when talking fine wine. Seifried have been making wine in the Nelson region since 1976 and now have over 180 hectares of land under vine and is one of the largest wineries in the region.
A recent winner in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2010, Seifried’s Sweet Agnes Riesling 2009 has had it’s fair share of success over the year, with golds in 3 other shows and picked up the trophy at The International Sweet Wine Over £10 Trophy – Decanter World Wine Awards 2010.
The wine is Spring and Autumn in aroma, with dried honied peach and citrus with spring flower overtones. The palate is rich and sweet with racy spicy acid and great texture and balance. This wine can either be drunk as an aperitif or dessert wine and will certainly be a dinner party success over the Christmas break.
