Seifried 2011 Riesling (Nelson)
Light in weight, delicate in style, this is just barely off dry. Crisp apple fruit carries hints of riper stone fruit (nectarine?) but is underlain by a distinctly stony note. The lingering finish ably balances tart and sweet.
Seifried 2004 Riesling (Nelson)
From the little-known region of Nelson, this Riesling bursts with petrol and lime scents. Quite full-bodied for a Riesling, with a touch of residual sugar and plenty of alcohol (12.5%), yet it retains a sense of grace and a finely developed minerality not often found in New World Riesling. Imported by Robert Whale…
Seifried 2010 Pinot Gris (Nelson)
This full-bodied, off-dry wine represents a pretty good value in the current market. The flavors hint at peach, melon and citrus but finish clean and refreshing despite evident sweetness.
Seifried 2006 Gewürztraminer (Nelson)
A bit on the sweet side, Seifried’s 2006 Gewürztraminer features scents of lychee fruit and rose petals, then adds flavors of honey, peach and pear on the palate. Lingers elegantly on the finish. Drink now.
Seifried 2005 Winemakers Collection Riesling (Nelson)
A ripe, fruity style of Riesling off the gravels of the Brightwater region, this wine features apple and pear flavors, medium body, lovely balance and a long, mostly dry finish. Imported by Robert Whale Selections Inc.
Seifried 2004 Winemakers Collection Barrique Fermented Chardonnay (Nelson)
Toasty and nutty on the nose--the barrel influence is obvious, but it's backed by nicely balanced flavors of melon and spice and a lingering finish. Not a blockbuster or simple oak-bomb, this shows a fair amount of elegance. Drink now.
Seifried 2004 Winemakers Collection Pinot Noir (Nelson)
Richer and more concentrated than Seifried’s regular Pinot, with bold black cherry and cola flavors that linger on the finish, adding hints of vanilla and spice. Imported by Robert Whale Selections Inc.
Seifried 2004 Sauvignon Blanc (Nelson)
A riper style of SB, built around a core of passion fruit. Ripe fig and melon notes accent the strident tropical fruit, while the harmonious finish picks up hints of grapefruit. Medium-to-full-bodied; richer than most despite having only 12.5% alcohol. Imported by Robert Whale Selections Inc.
