ABOUT THE WINE


A family owned company with the vineyard established since 2018 after getting grapes from contract growers for 10 years. Shigehisa Kimura started his wine career as a sommelier in a top hotel in Tokyo where he worked for 10 years. He was a qualified sommelier which is a highly sought after wine qualification in Japan. A trip to France to see some Vineyards and wineries bewitched him and inspired his winemaking venture. After this, Shige decided to move to New Zealand to study winemaking. Kimura Cellars is one of the smallest boutique producers in Marlborough. As a result, they can make artisanally-made wine which shows true reflection of its place with having a lot of attention to detail to grape growing and winemaking.
Winemaker's Blend, The vineyard of the Riesling is in Awatere Valley and the vineyards of the Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer are in Wairau Valley. The grapes are harvested by machine and pressed gently. The most of the juice is fermented at low temperature in stainless steel tank to retain aromatic and freshness. A small portion of 8% is fermented in old French oak to give complexity into the final blend.


TASTING NOTE:


This is delightful wine which shows different aspects each time it is enjoyed. Gewurztraminer provides florals and spice with weight while Riesling adds citrus, length and structure, The Pinot Gris provides stone fruits with great texture. The wine has expression of elegant aromatic and bright juicy fruit flavor with a rounded mouthfeel and a supple fine chalky texture.


FOOD PAIRING:


It pairs well with a wide range of dishes, including seafood, salads, and light pasta dishes.
