Luscious sweet Riesling from the pioneering Seifried family estate in Nelson, just around the coast from Marlborough. The region boasts 2,400 hours of sunshine a year, bringing amazing intensity and complexity to this Trophy winning, two Golds white.
This utterly irresistible dessert wine, with all its Trophies, Golds and Double Golds every vintage, is the pride of Hermann Seifried. He was a grape growing pioneer, who arrived in New Zealand’s South Island from Austria, via Germany and South Africa, in 1969. He met and married Kiwi lass Agnes Wilkins, and they soon realised their shared dream of growing grapes. 1976 was their maiden vintage and over 40 years on the Seifrieds are racking up countless awards with the help of the second generation. Sweet Agnes is pure, late harvested Riesling crafted from naturally ‘raisined’ grapes from the stony soils of their Eden Road vineyard. Beautifully balanced, it's delicious on its own or with apricot tart, lemon meringue pie and other desserts.
"Honeyed apricot and pineapple notes, with a lime-like streak of acidity. A crisp, refreshing edge"
