Sam Kim (Wine Orbit) has this to say about two wines dating from last decade – our 2009 Brightside Riesling and 2009 Kaimira Estate Pinot Gris:
BRIGHTSDE RIESLING 2009 91/100 4.5 STARS
This is beautifully maturing. It’s complex, flavoursome and immensely appealing with lemon curd, yellow stone fruit, floral and subtle toasty notes on the nose, leading to a vibrant palate that’s juicy and lively with lovely balance between elegant sweetness and crisp acidity. It’s a treat having a wine with age. At its best: now to 2016. Nov 2014.
KAIMIRA ESTATE PINOT GRIS 2009 93/100 5 STARS
It’s soothing and comforting with rich texture and flowing mouthfeel, beautifully supported by ripe tropical fruit and peach notes with subtle spice complexity. The wine shows wonderful ripeness and richness; harmonious and integrated; while remaining elegant and charming. A gracefully matured Pinot Gris. At its best: now to end of 2015. Limited availability. www.kaimirawines.com. Nov 2014.
