Description

Seifried Winemakers Collection Sweet Agnes Riesling is one of the most awarded dessert wines from New Zealand.

Seifried was established in 1973, when Hermann and Agnes Seifried planted grapes in the Moutere Valley between Nelson and Motueka. The first 2ha of grapes planted out included 14 different Vinifera varieties which were all grafted on to phylloxera-resistant rootstock. 1976 saw the first harvest, with five distinctive varietal wines being made. At that time wine sales were entirely mail order and cellar door. Currently the Seifrieds have over 180 hectares of producing vineyards, with a further 5ha too young to yet be bearing fruit. With 35 permanent employees at the winery/vineyard complex and a further 10 involved in the domestic sales and marketing of the wines, Seifrieds is a company with a strong direction on growth. The wine-producing region of Nelson offers pristine conditions and, along with specially selected north facing vineyard sites, offer a range of soils from free draining gravels to heavy alluvial clays and a climate tailor-made for growing richly varietal, elegant wines. Still, frosty winters, long dry summers, cool autumn nights combined with the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand.

The fruit for Seifried Winemakers Collection Sweet Agnes Riesling comes from the Edens Road Vineyard. This vineyard is bordered by the Wairoa River and is notable for its exceptionally stony soil structure. The free draining soil is very harsh on our vineyard equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of the Nelson sun and for ripening grapes. Using 100% Riesling fruit, the grapes were hand selected at the peak of ripeness with a large portion of the fruit shrivelled and raisined, caused by natural dehydration. The grapes were then gently pressed to release a very concentrated intensely flavoured juice. The sweetness level of the juice was 37° Brix. The fermentation was initiated immediately and continued for about two and a half weeks. During this time, the wine was monitored and tasted regularly. The young wine was then filtered and stabilised before bottling.

Seifried Winemakers Collection Sweet Agnes Riesling 37.5cl Half Bottle is suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.

Seifried are also members of Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand.

Tasting Notes

Seifried Winemakers Collection ‘Sweet Agnes’ Riesling is succulent and enticing
on the nose with candied citrus peel and honeysuckle. The palate explodes with flavours of concentrated dried apricots, toffee apples and appealing acidity running the length of the wine leaving a long and tasty finish.
