Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Sauvignon Blanc was one of the best Sauvignon Blancs that I have covered so far this year. It opens with a moderate gooseberry bouquet with a hint of yellow grapefruit. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and very quaffable. The flavor profile is a pleasant blend of mild grapefruit and gooseberry with a touch of minerality and lime. The finish is dry and friendly. This vintage, Kim Crawford returns to the food friendly style of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that I like a lot. Pair this tasty wine with grilled swordfish. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale green. A bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is famous for. An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple and stonefruit with a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh and zesty. Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited for fresh oysters, asparagus dishes or summer salads.

Organic status: not organic
