Gorgeous luscious sweetie from the 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 five Golds, one Trophy, 95 point white!
"Intense and luscious tropical fruit, apricot and orange zest. Sweet but perfectly balanced"
Bob Campbell MW 95 Points
This utterly irresistible dessert wine, with all its Golds, Double Golds and Platinum (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 nearly 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 puds.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
