Split Rock Sauvignon is as vibrant as they come, packed full of tropical fruit and citrus. It’s from the pioneering Seifried family estate, who set up in the super-sunny coastal region of Nelson in 1973 (way before most of Marlborough next door).

The crisp, fruit-filled Split Rock has been a bestselling Sauvignon for two decades. And it all started with love! In the 1970s Hermann Seifried, then a fresh-faced Austrian wine nut seeking adventure, travelled to New Zealand. It was a final stop-off on a world tour, mainly to see where the All Blacks came from. There he fell in love with a local primary school teacher, Agnes, and has never left. In 1973 the couple realised their shared dream – to plant a vineyard – and have since racked up a host of awards. Today their three children, Chris, Heidi and Anna, help run the property in Nelson – a region with over 2,400 hours of sunshine, it's the sunniest in New Zealand. No wonder Split Rock is so tropical and gooseberry fresh. Very moreish.
