2016 Kaimira Estate Brightwater Pinot Blanc – CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND VEGAN FRIENDLY

Winemaking notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced entirely from the certified organic winery block vineyard in Brightwater, Nelson. It is made from selectively hand-picked Pinot Blanc harvested on 30 March 2016 at 22.6ºBrix.

The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice allowed to settle. Both a stainless steel tank and barriques were used for fermentation – 70% of the ferment took place in tank and the remainder in both oak and acacia barriques.

After fermentation was complete, the wine was aged on gross lees for 8 months. The blended wine was then filtered and bottled on 20 March 2017.

Tasting notes

An expressive aromatic wine with well-rounded white fruit and citrus flavours, lees complexity and a lingering fresh finish. The concentration and balance of the wine suggest that careful cellaring will be rewarded.
