Wine Review: I like the 2008 more than the highly acclaimed 2007 Sauvignon Blanc from Kim Crawford. The 2008 is pale yellow in color and opens with a light lime bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied wine is well balanced, clean, and displays tasty lime flavors. The finish is dry and refreshing. This very food friendly wine would pair nicely with swordfish or mahi mahi. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Colour: Pale green. Aroma: Lifted aromatics of tropical fruits combined with the traditional nettle and herbaceous aromas of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Palate: Firm acidity is surrounded by hints of sweat, tropical fruits and herbaceous notes with hints of citrus sneaking in. A whopping mouthful of Marlborough. Food match: Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads.

Organic status: not organic
