On the nose, I found a strong green bell pepper and asaparagus aroma, followed by white flowers and citrus. There were strong bell pepper and asparagus flavors when tasting the wine, as well, but the flowers did not appear in the mouth. Instead, there was a nice blend of grass, lime, and peach. Overall, the acidity made for a nice, crisp wine that lingered in the mouth. For a complete review, visit my blog at http://bit.ly/167sMr

Great example of a NZ SB. I get lots of grass, herb, and lychee with a little citrus in there too. Great acidity, nice and crisp. Very good wine at this price point!

Citrus (lime, grapefruit) with a touch of kiwi fruit to the nose; very fresh tasting. A nice wine to sip on a sunny spring day.

Loved this wine. I am not a huge white wine drinker either. I love the crisp, citrusy flavor and fine finish. Very elegant Sauv blanc which typically leave me with the....eh...factor. Eh.it was ok. Nothing to write home about. But this one...was fabulous.

Big aromatic Sauv Blanc. Get a bit of spice in nose, some citrus, some honey ... lots of things going with the aroma. Mild acidity, lemon, citrus and a bit of honey on the taste. GREAT value.

Great Sauvignon Blanc. Citrus notes dominated by grapefruit followed by pineapple and floral notes. Finishes up clean and crisp.

Tropical fruit and stonefruits with a fresh zesty finish.

Kim Crawford has consistently offered a well-priced, quality Sauvignon Blanc since the winery was founded in 1996. The 2004 is no exception. Crawford keeps quality high by using grapes from low-yielding vineyards, but holds down costs with machine harvesting. The grapes come from four subareas in Marlborough, and the entire production was bottled with screw caps.

Saline, citrus, minty and smoky aromas, along with a suggestion of sake. Then round and fleshy in the mouth, but with penetrating flavors of gooseberry, mint and fresh herbs. A confusing blend of thickness of texture and very dry, penetrating flavors. Finishes with a slight sour edge.


External Review

The iconic New Zealand wineryrsquo;s Sauvignon Blanc hits all the right notes in 2007, featuring lush stone-fruit flavors accented by less ripe note of fresh herbs and capsicum. A fine apeacute;ritif, or try served with herb-seasoned shellfish. Drink now and over the next six months.

Not overly aggressive, this light- to medium-weight Sauvignon Blanc features fresh leafy herbs, but also boasts plenty of melon and grapefruit to maintain its balance. A little soft on the finish, but clean, with lingering notes of pink grapefruit.

Explosively aromatic, brimming with spice, herb and peppery character, surprisingly docile in the mouth, with lovely pear, apple, melon and mineral flavors that linger enticingly. Impeccably balanced. Drink now.


External Review

This wine has evolved toward scents of honeysuckle and orange marmalade, its pithy flavors of orange peel grounded in earthiness. With a year in bottle, itrsquo;s fragrant and still fresh, ready for grilled prawns.

Winemaker's Notes:

These grapes were selected from a number of vineyards throughout the Marlborough region. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavours. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations were carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had completed ferment they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled. All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavours, power and complexity of this stunning wine. TASTING 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. Cellar: This wine will continue to develop for years to come. Food match: Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads.
