Edens Road is our newest vineyard development with Sauvignon Blanc vines being established there in 2008. With really free draining, stone soils, this site is adjacent to the Wairoa River, and results in lovely fruit minerality. The fruit tends to show exceptional varietal intensity and purity.
The Brightwater Vineyard is situated 15 kilometres from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond Ranges. The ‘soilí is a combination of rocks and boulders which is very hard on the farm equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of Nelsonís sun and for ripening the grapes.
The Rabbit Island Vineyard is situated on a wide river flat. The soil is gravelly sandy loam, which is very sandy and free draining. These vineyards are about 1.5 kilometres from the sea, which helps moderate temperatures.
|The Seifried family have been making stylish food-friendly wines since 1976. The range includes rich full Chardonnays, fine floral Rieslings, lively Sauvignon Blancs, warm plummy Pinot Noirs and intensely delicious dessert wines.
