Kaimira Estate Brightwater Riesling

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
This wine typically matures well. The 2010 vintage is youthful, with fresh lemon, lime and peach flavours showing excellent depth. A medium-dry style (7 grams/litre of residual sugar), it is crisp and slightly minerally, with obvious potential.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
This wine typically ages well. The 2008 vintage is full-bodied and finely balanced, with a sliver of sweetness (6.5 grams/litre of residual sugar) and good intensity of citrusy, slightly limey flavours. Generous, with a lingering finish, it should be at its best mid-2010+.

Michael Cooper (2005 Vintage) says
Estate-grown at Brightwater, in Nelson, the 2004 vintage is a medium-dry style with strong, citrusy flavours woven with fresh acidity. The 2005 is just off-dry (5.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), with fresh, citrusy, limey flavours, finely balanced and rich. A full-bodied wine with impressive depth, it's already enjoyable but should also mature well.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
Estate-grown at Brightwater, in Nelson, the 2003 vintage is tight and zesty, with very good depth of lemony, appley flavour, refreshing acidity and plenty of cellaring potential. The 2004 (not rated, because it was still bottle-shocked when I tasted it in August) is a medium-dry style (9 grams/litre of residual sugar), with strong citrusy flavours woven with fresh acidity.
