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

Your comments on this wine:





Clinking Glasses Before Tasting Wine: Originates from medieval times. Milk was often spoiled, water was often polluted. Wine was usually safe. The host would drink the wine first and then clink glasses with guests to show the wine was good and safe for drinking.
