What we love
“Nimmo” comes across and gentle, bone dry and tart, yet speaks effusively in the nose and thunderously on the palate. A barrel fermented blend of Kerner (64%) with Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Bacchus, this white wine explodes with citrusy notes of grapefruit and pomelo, with silky textures suggestive of whipped cream and twists of lemon peel. Want something new for your palate? This is it.
About this Wine
“Nimmo” is the only cuvée of Niggli’s white line-up to see some oak: 60% spent five months in new French oak, on lees. It has a fantastically interesting array of aromas that harmoniously transitions onto the palate. Just about any food that would pair with a Sauvignon Blanc would work well with this unique and wonderful white wine.
Kerner: This grape variety was conceived in Germany in 1929 by crossing Riesling with the light red variety Trollinger (aka Schiava Grossa) with the goal of developing a grape similar to Riesling that would thrive in cooler climates. The wines are characteristically fresh and fruity, like Riesling, but with a more fragrant nose, milder acidity, greater minerality, and slightly fuller body. Think tart citrus, apples, and pears.
Pro tip: Because this wine is bottled under screwcap, a brief decant is recommended to introduce some oxygen to the wine – it will bring out the aromatics and soften the texture even more.
