The Vineyard

The 2021 Seifried Nelson Pinot Gris is a blend of Pinot Gris from our Brightwater and Redwood Valley vineyards. The growing season was cooler than usual in Nelson resulting in delicate aromatics and brighter acidity.

The Brightwater vines are grown in an extremely stony area of the vineyard where water and nutrient levels are low. This helps us to restrict plant vigour and to crop at low levels.

Our Brightwater vineyard is situated 15 km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond ranges. The ‘soil’ is a combination of rocks and boulders which is very hard on farm equipment but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun and for ripening the Pinot Gris grapes.

The unirrigated Redwood Valley vineyard is situated on a gently sloping, north-facing clay site; the vines range in age from 10 to 30 years. Vertical shoot positioning helps to expose the berries to sunlight, thus getting maximum intensity and optimal ripeness.

Winemaker's Notes

The Pinot Gris was harvested from vineyard blocks comprising differing soils, micro-climates, and clones, as well as different aged vines. The parcels were harvested and fermented separately prior to blending at a much later stage. The resulting wine has a broad palate and is full-flavoured, bringing a unique and complex spectrum of characters to the finished wine.

"Beautifully fruited and elegantly fragrant with apricot, poached pear, lemon zest and floral aromas on the nose. The juicy palate offers youthful charm and lovely fruit purity, leading to a soothing succulent finish"
