"Nelson, as a winegrowing region, does not really hang its hat on any one varietal so has a reputation for a wide range of styles unlike, say, Marlborough, Central Otago or Hawkes Bay. It also owes a huge debt to the gentle giant from Austria."
2011 Seifried Nelson Pinot Gris: "In a sea of mediocre pinot gris this is not only well-priced but rich, smooth and deeply satisfying. Intense apricot and almond characters with splashes of spice and herbs. A lovely wine with spring salads and vegetables.”
2010 Seifried Nelson Pinot Noir: “Well-priced, easy earl-drinking and highly quaffable with soft cheery and strawberry characters and a dash of warm spicy oak. A super value summer sipper.”
