Our Brightwater Vineyard is exceptionally stony with free draining soils, which is very hard on the farm equipment. The large stones however are vital for holding the warmth of the Nelson sun and for ripening the grapes. Lively fruit characters are evident in fruit harvested from this block.
The fruit in our 2022 Seifried Nelson Rosé comes from our Brightwater Vineyard. Parcels of fruit were picked incrementally in March 2022 at peak of flavour and phenolic ripeness. Drained juice was settled, warmed and inoculated for a clean, crisp fermentation to retain lovely fruit characters. The wine had a brief period on yeast lees before being stabilised and bottled in July 2022.
The 2022 Seifried Nelson Rosé has an inviting rose pink colour. The nose has notes of fresh quince jelly, strawberries and spring blooms. The palate is fresh and vibrant with layers of summer fruits and gentle acidity running through the palate.
