Seifried Nelson Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
There is a pretty, herbal complexity to the cool demeanour of Nelson pinot noir, and Seifried encapsulates it particularly gracefully in 2010. A wine of fruit focus, primary cherry and redcurrant flavours and finely textural tannins.

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (new to two years old), the 2009 vintage is ruby-hued, with pleasant, light strawberry and spice flavours, a hint of oak and drink-young charm. The 2010 is gutsy (14.5 per cent alcohol), with mouthfilling body and firm, slightly leafy flavours.

Nick Stock (2008 Vintage) says
From one of Nelson's pioneering wineries, this has a really engaging spiced cherry nose, some strawberry and savoury earthy notes too. The palate has an innate sense of balance from start to finish, making smooth trails of light cherry flavour in elegant shape, finishing with a wrap of gentle tannin.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Traditionally a light style, but the latest releases are more generous. Matured for a year in new and one-year-old French oak barriques, the 2003 vintage is a substantial wine (14 per cent alcohol) with firm tannins and ripe-fruit characters. Robust and spicy, it's a flavoursome wine, still unfolding.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Matured for nine months in oak casks (60 per cent new), with some whole berry fermentation, the 2001 vintage is light-medium ruby in colour, with spicy, nutty flavours showing good depth and tight, slightly stalky tannins. It's still developing; open mid-20O3+.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Seifried's white wines generally outshine the reds. Fresh, berryish fruit flavours hold sway in this light Nelson red, which typically has a Beaujolais-like fruitiness, softness and simplicity that makes it enjoyable in its youth. The 1998 vintage was matured for nine months in seasoned French oak barriques. Ruby-hued, it's a buoyant, plummy, nutty wine, firmer and more deeply flavoured than past releases and worth cellaring to 2000+.

Michael Cooper (1996 Vintage) says
Fresh, berryish fruit flavours hold sway in this undemanding Nelson red, which typically has a Beaujolais-like fruitiness, softness and simplicity that makes it enjoyable in its youth. The 1996 vintage, matured for 10 months in two and three-year-old French oak barriques, is a typically forward style with lightish colour and straightforward plum/berry flavours, fruity and crisp.
