We’ve just received two new reviews for our 2016 Kaimira Estate Sauvignon Blanc.
Raymond Chan awards it 4 stars out of 5, and 17.5 points out of 20.
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.
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.
Sam Kim of Wine Orbit awards the wine 4.5 stars out of 5, 90/100 points.
Attractively fruited and lifted, the bouquet shows Gala apple, nectarine, lemon/lime peel and subtle herbaceous characters, leading to a flavoursome palate that is lively and juicy. The wine offers classic varietal notes with bright acidity, finishing long and vibrant. At its best: now to 2020.
This Sauvignon Blanc earned a Silver Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition in July 2017 and a Silver Medal at the NZ Organic Wine Awards in May 2017.
It’s still drinking beautifully, get yourself a case just in time for the summer holiday season!
