The Kaitui Sauvignon Blanc from Markus Schneider is Germany's answer to New Zealand's white wine success. The name alone shows that Markus Schneider wants to compete with classics from the other end of the world - like Cloudy Bay & Co. Kaitui means "tailor" in the Maori language.
The Kaitui Sauvignon Blanc with its delicate platinum yellow colour and greenish reflections is put into the glass. The first nose immediately recalls classic New Zealand or cold climate aromas. Freshly mown grass, boxwood, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, kiwi and crisp Granny Smith apple come to mind. Mineral notes and echoes of white flowers complement each other.
On the palate the Schneider Kaitui starts out exceptionally powerful, juicy and palatable. Mineral nuances, fine melting and a long, exotic fruity finish make this wine an incredible experience.
Vinification of the Kaitui Sauvignon Blanc
Markus Schneider gets the grapes for his Kaitui from particularly high plots where the vines are rooted in limestone soil. After mashing, the grapes are left to macerate for 4 to 10 hours, after which the wine is gently pressed and fermented at a controlled temperature.
