Kimura Cellars Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2022 750ml
Winery Notes: - "The first Sauvignon Blanc planted in Marlborough was in 1973, which is the year Shige was born. It is said that 75% of grapes in New Zealand is Sauvignon Blanc.
Our Sauvignon Blanc represents fresh fruit characters such as grapefruit, lemon, pear and passionfruit in a non-herbaceous style. It is rich and weighty, with complexity and texture, fresh acidity and a long, crisp finish."
KIMURA CELLARS is one of the smallest boutique producers in Marlborough.
A small family owned company run by a Japanese couple, winemaker Shigehisa (Shige) Kimura and his wife Mieko who have owned the vineyard since 2018.
They make artisan wines which show a true reflection of its place by paying a lot of attention to detail in the grape growing and winemaking.
Their philosophy for their vineyard is that they use no herbicide, no insecticide and no pesticides. Since 2022, they are now BioGro Organic certified.
They make premium wines from grapes which are grown with respect of sustainability of land and overall ecosystem.
The wine label of KIMURA CELLARS represents a Koru with a cherry blossom motif. The cherry blossom is a symbol of Japan just as a Koru is a symbol of NZ.
The meaning of the Koru on the design of the label represents “harmony” between New Zealand and Japan as it is made by a Japanese winemaker in New Zealand, and also “New start”and “Growth” to KIMURA CELLARS.
