Kaitui Sauvignon Blanc by Markus Schneider is Germany's answer to New Zealand's white wine success. The name already 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 language of the Maori (note the profession, not the surname).
The Kaitui Sauvignon Blanc comes into the glass with a delicate platinum yellow colour and greenish reflections. The first nose immediately reminds of classic New Zealand or cold climate aromas. Freshly mowed grass, boxwood, lemongrass, caffir lime leaves, kiwi and crispy Granny Smith apple come to mind. Mineral notes and hints of white flowers complement.
On the palate the tailor Kaitui starts exceptionally powerful, juicy tasty. Mineral nuances, fine melting and a long, exotic-fruity reverberation make this wine an incredible experience.
Vinification of the Kaitui Sauvignon Blanc Markus Schneider gets the grapes
for his Kaitui from particularly high parcels, where the vines are rooted in limestone soil. After mashing, a mashing life of 4 to 10 hours follows, after which the wine is gently pressed and fermented in a temperature-controlled manner.
