Harvest 2020

July 22, 2020


As the light at the end of the tunnel gets slighter brighter here in NZ and the first of the 2020 wines go-to bottle, we can take a minute to look back on the whirlwind that was Vintage 2020 – under lockdown!

The harvest which Hermann describes as one of the most challenging in his winemaking career, but this time the sleepless nights were not due to rain on the roof or disease pressure in the vineyard, but the uncertainty of what would come next in this moment in history.

Here are just some of the faces who helped get us through – and a wee look at harvest 2020 behind-the-scenes at Seifried Estate, Nelson, New Zealand. Enjoy!

Rabbit Island Review

June 19, 2020

A lovely mention (or so we’re told!) from Всеволод Топонаров of Jigger – Drink Club, Russia – on two of our favourite Rabbit Island wines.


Aotea By the Seifried Family Nelson Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasted by Tina Gellie as part of Decanter -  New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs: 20 under £25

"The Aotea range is Seifried's pinnacle of production, the fruit for this wine sourced from the Rabbit Island vineyard 1.5km from the sea. It sees no oak, allowing the ripe apricot, zippy lemongrass and grassy green characters to shine, which linger on the long, tropical finish. Seek out the family's 2019 Old Coach Road Sauvignon from younger vines, which is great value."
