Seifried Sweet Agnes Riesling
The palate is full and mouth filling with succulent moreish flavours of tangerine and luscious peach. Gorgeous acidity cuts through the palate and invites another sip.
Using 100% Riesling fruit, the grapes were hand selected at the peak of ripeness with a large portion of the fruit shrivelled and raisined, caused by natural dehydration. The grapes were then gently pressed to release a very concentrated intensely flavoured juice.
Our Brightwater vineyard is situated 15 km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond ranges. The “soil” is a combination of rocks and boulders, which is very hard on the farm equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun and for ripening grapes.
