Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
Tank-fermented and mostly American oak-matured, with lots of lees-stirring, this affordable wine from Seifried Estate is an upfront, high-flavoured style that slides down very easily. The 2009 vintage is typically fresh, lemony and flavoursome, with a smooth finish and drink-young appeal.

Michael Cooper (2004 Vintage) says
American oak-aged, with lots of lees-stirring, this moderately priced wine has won many awards, in New Zealand and the UK. It's an upfront style, smoothed by full malolactic fermentation and a sliver of sweetness (4 grams/litre of residual sugar). The 2003 vintage is scented and citrusy, with very good depth, offering great value. The 2004 is typically lemony, toasty and well-rounded.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The 2002 vintage from Seifried Estate is a great buy. Grown in Nelson and 40 per cent barrel-fermented (in one and two-year-old oak), it has toast, pineapple and butterscotch aromas leading into a mouthfilling, rich palate, mealy and slightly creamy. It's an upfront style, generous and long.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The 2001 vintage from Seifried Estate is a gently) wooded style - 2(1 per cent of the final blend was oak-fermented and 50 per cent was American oak-aged. It's a full-bodied, fruit-driven style with fairly rich citrusy flavours, fresh and lively, a subtle wood influence and good mouthfeel. Fine value.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Here's a bargain! Grown in Seifried Estate's Rabbit Island vineyard, with 35 per cent of the final blend barrel-aged for four months, the 1998 vintage is a full, ripe, fruity wine with mouthfilling body. It's a simple style, but highly enjoyable.
