A lively nose with typical tropical/citrus fruits and melon, joined by varietal herbaceous notes. The palate is ripe and juicy with a well-textured mineral backbone. The result is a rounded and complex wine, which balances lively fruit sweetness with the natural crisp characteristics of the variety.
Since its inception, Kaimira has pushed for both organic farming and sustainability, achieving carbon neutrality in 2006, winning New Zealand Sustainable Business of the Year in 2012, and completing organic certification that same year! Brightside is a very apt name for this Sauvignon Blanc - it has that bright Nelson character that comes from the complex clay and gravel soils, giving sharp features and classy poise to the lovely racy Sauvignon fruit.
Nelson is a small wine region in the north-west of New Zealand's South Island. It is surrounded by mountains and is ideal for aromatic grape varieties.
