Kaimira Brightwater Semillon 2009

28-Mar-2017
Kaimira Estate is the Brightwater, Nelson wine brand of Ian Miller and June Hamilton who own over 26 hectares of vineyard in three sites, the 6 ha ‘River Terrace’, 10 ha ‘Winery Block’ and 10.5 ha ‘Livingston Road’ vineyard. All three sites are AsureQuality certified organic. The original plantings were made in 1997, and company growth required the building of a new winery in 2007. The vineyard manager is Chris Martin and winemaker is Shayne Cox, both with the company since 2015. A broad range of wines is made under the premium ‘Kamira Estate’ and more accessible ‘Brightside’ labels, including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Chardonnay and Semillon in whites, and Pinot Noir and Syrah in red. New varieties and styles are being explored. Here, I review the 2009 Kaimira Estate Semillon, now with bottle age. www.kaimirawines.com
