New release Kiwi Sauvignon, not from Marlborough, but from next door Nelson. This suntrap region inspired Hermann Seifried to plant vines in 1973. His son makes the wine today and his 2020 is pulsing with zingy lime, nettle leaf and tropical fruit.
For a ripe, yet lively white, head for New Zealand. Marlborough is the best known region, but just round the coast is Nelson, sunshine capital of South Island. Austrian-born Hermann Seifried and his wife Agnes planted vines there in 1973. Today they have an impressive 300 hectares that stretch over sun-laden hills - perfect for grapes. Their three children, brought up very much among the vines, now work at the family estate – Chris is head winemaker, his sister Heidi, a dentist and part-time winemaker, and youngest, Anna, heads up sales. This fruit-filled Sauvignon with zippy lime and mineral character is a celebration of the region's beautiful, golden sand beaches and turquoise seas. Chill down and enjoy solo or with spicy Asian dishes.
"Terrifically fresh, ripe and zesty white from around the corner from Marlborough, Nelson"
Dan Parrott Buyer for New Zealand
