VIOGNIER ACCOLADE

Here’s what Michael Cooper has to say about our VERY FIRST Viognier (certified organic):

Kaimira Estate Brightwater Viognier 2014

“Hand-picked and fermented in seasoned oak casks, this is a fragrant, full-bodied wine (13% alc/vol), with concentrated stone-fruit flavours, hints of oak adding complexity, and a rich, dry finish.”

Michael Cooper, NZ Listener, 17 July 2017  4 ½ STARS

Kudos to the vineyard crew and to our winemaker for crafting this elegant wine!

OUR MULTI-SKILLED VINEYARD MANAGER IS TO REPRESENT NELSON

Do you think you could compete in Horti-Sports; operate a Fendt Vario tractor safely; budget and do due-diligence on purchasing a small vineyard in the Lower Wairau; demonstrate multiple pruning styles including Sylvoz, Spur and VSP; dig a metre deep hole and install an Ecotrellis Conventional strainer assembly and intermediates; answer a Quickfire Quiz on viticulture topics; AND deliver a dinner speech??

All in a day’s work for Laurie Stradling, our vineyard manager, who yesterday competed alongside entrants from Marlborough in the Bayer  Young Viticulturist of the Year 2017.

A big shout out to Laurie  who qualified to represent Nelson at the National Final!
