Seifried Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Seifried Sauvignon Blanc 750ml 2008   
Sku: 15846

This is predominantly from the ‘Cornfield’ Vineyard which is located adjacent to the winery near the ‘Rabbit Island’ Vineyard, and is situated on a wide river flat. The soil is made up of gravelly sandy loam which marks the sites of Maori kumara beds (sweet potato) from a period prior to European settlement in the early 1800’s. The Maori transferred and spread fine gravel and sand over the land to provide suitable soils for their kumara plantings. Scrub was burned to give ash and charcoal, which increased soil fertility and gave characteristic topsoil. This fertility is now reduced because of modern farming, however the soils are very sandy and free draining. Due to the close proximity to the coast line (just 1.5 kilometres) the water table is relatively high, ensuring adequate underground water, as well as moderate temperatures. The rest of our Seifried Sauvignon Blanc blend is harvested from our Redwood Valley Vineyard. The unirrigated Redwood Valley Vineyard is situated on a gently sloping, north facing clay site; the vines range in age from 9 to 26 years. Vertical shoot positioning helps to expose the berries to sunlight, thus getting maximum intensity and optimal ripeness.
