Reviews and Ratings

From Seifried Estate, Old Coach Road (2017) is a zesty Sauvignon Blanc from Nelson, South Island with a mouthful of gooseberry, citrus and lemongrass flavours on the palate. Very Fresh! Enjoy now and pair with fish tacos. Old Coach was named after the historic route of the mail run through the Moutere Hills of Nelson used in the 1850s. The winery first planted grapes in 1973, and is still family-owned and run by Hermann Seifried. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
