Kaimira Brightwater Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 11-Nov-2018
Bright, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-green hues, paler on the edge. The nose is elegant in proportion with a fine, well-bound core of green stonefruits with subtle notes of gooseberries, herbs and nuances of earth and minerals. This is beginning to show secondary development, but retains very good freshness. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a well-concentrated core with harmoniously packed and integrated flavours of green stonefruits, hints of gooseberries and herbs, and some secondary earthiness. The palate has good intensity and drive, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by balanced, lacy acidity. The wine flows with good energy to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a finely concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with stonefruit, gooseberry and herb flavours along with integrated bottle-aged earthy notes emerging, on a palate with directness and linearity. Match with seafood and Mediterranean fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from 8 y.o. vines, fermented in stainless-steel with 10% in hogshead barrels by indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc. and 4.2 g/L RS, the wine given lees contact. 17.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $21.00
