Split Rock is a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, packed with lemon and tropical fruit. It’s from the pioneering Seifried family estate, who set up in the coastal Nelson region in 1973, way before most of Marlborough next door. A brilliant, sun-filled white.
"Excellent Sauvignon. Really delicious NZ Sauvignon Blanc, zingy and fresh! 5-Stars"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Cooling sea breezes and abundant sunshine ensure vivacious, ripe fruit in this appetising white. It’s named after the landmark Split Apple Rock in Abel Tasman National Park, where Hermann Seifried built a winery in 1973 with the help of his local church. He’d only arrived in New Zealand three years earlier from Austria, via Germany (where he studied winemaking) and South Africa. He married Kiwi lass Agnes Wilkins, and two years later they realised their shared dream of growing grapes. 1976 was their maiden vintage, and 40+ years on the Seifrieds are still going strong and racking up a host of awards. Gooseberry fresh Split Rock slips down a treat on its own and perfectly partners dishes such as spicy prawns, grilled chicken or creamy pasta.
