Kim Crawford Chardonnay Marlborough Unoaked 2008
Wine Tasting Notes Pale straw with hints of gold. Lifted stonefruit and guava combines with butterscotch of malolactic. Just like granny rewarding you with a Werthers Original Toffee for eating all your tropical fruit. Full and rich with good fruit weight and length is balanced nicely with firm acidity.
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.
External Reviews for Kim Crawford Chardonnay Marlborough Unoaked
Light and refreshing, a zingy mouthful of citrus, apple and guava flavors that echo nicely on the uncomplicated finish. Drink now.
Tangy aromas of orange, peach, melon and underripe pineapple. Juicy, fruity and fresh, with supple melon, peach and nectarine flavors perked up by some CO2 Vibrant but not at all hard. Clean, lightly spicy finish shows subtle persistence.
Green pear, dried yellow apple and wet stone nuances have good concentration, with tart lemon rind and a hint of balsamic in the finish. Drink now.
Earthy, stalky flavors overcome the modest fruit. Drink now.
This is a plump, fruit-driven Chardonnay loaded with apple and citrus. The wine's medium body and crisp, clean finish should prove versatile with a wide array of foods.

A reliably fruit-filled offering, the 2005 version offers honeyed apple, melon and pear flavors carried by a well-rounded and slightly viscous wine. On the soft side, with a pithy note to the finish.
