Kim Crawford Wines:
One of the reasons why New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs have taken the world by storm. Delightful to the point of exuberance, this is a great wine for drinking alone of with lighter fare.

If you like your Sauvignon Blanc with a bit of grapefruit, it doesn't get much better than the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2006 from Marlborough, New Zealand. This wine is fresh, clean and crisp, and filled with flavors of grapefruit and lime. It's medium-bodied, low in acidity and has a moderate alcohol level of 13 percent -- a good thing, because it's a very easy wine to drink. It usually hits the shelf at just under $20 a bottle, but every now and then it goes on sale for about $15 -- when it does, stock up!

Citrus, crisp, totally refreshing. Went through 4 cases at my wedding, but who cares since I got it on sale in NJ for $12.99 a bottle! One of the best deals in the wine world in 2007.

intense tropical fruit while refraining from being unctious or cloying, a great price, a great choice for a novice wine drinker, a real people pleaser

Spit Fire Sauvignon Blanc 2006 - Kim Crawford: Spit Fire Sauvignon Blanc 2006 - Weißwein von Kim CrawfordDer zweite Jahrgang dieses großartigen Einzellagen-Sauvignon-Blancs war ein hervorragender Jahrgang, der mit seinen explosiven Fruchtaromen begeistert. Tropische Früchte, Passionsfrucht und Melone harmonieren wunderbar mit süßen Kräutertönen. Am Gaumen dann erneut eine üppige Frucht mit Anklängen von Feige, Melone und Passionsfrucht, die durch eine perfekt eingebaute Säure noch mehr Komplexität erhält. Der Spit Fire Sauvignon Blanc 2006 von Kim Crawford wird von einem sehr lang anhaltenden Finale gekrönt. Er ist besonders zu Austern mit Zitronengras und Fisch zu empfehlen, ist aber auch solo ein Trinkgenuss.Weingut: Kim Crawford WinesLand: NeuseelandRegion: Marlborough Rebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 12,75 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 7,5 g/lRestsüße: 3,0 g/lLagerfähigkeit: 4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 6-8 °CAuszeichnungen für den Kim Crawford Spit Fire Sauvignon Blanc 2006:Goldmedaille - New Zealand International Wine Show 2006Goldmedaille - Air New Zealand Wine Awards 200692 Punkte - Wine Spectator93 Punkte - Mondo Weißwein > Neuseeland > Marlborough

Classic Sauvignon characters of cut grass and tropical fruits are dominant on the nose. Unfolds with flavors of passionfruit, gooseberry and subtle herbaceousness. The wine is mouthfilling with good texture and finishes well with cleansing acidity and great length. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads.

Lush tropical fruit with key lime and a touch of green bell pepper, evenly balanced with good acidity to keep it fresh.
