Kim Crawford Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009
With this variety, a balance between exposure and shading is the key to get a balance between aromatics and weight. Continually assessing and tweaking exposure ratios is ongoing as the vineyards mature to ensure optimal quality. Harvest is on flavour where we are looking at ripe dark cherry/raspberry flavours. The tanks are hand plunged to break cap up, and to extract colour and flavour out of skins. A small portion of the wine goes through malolactic fermentation for mouth feel, the balance is matured on oak for five to seven months before blending. In this wine from Marlborough, we look for ripe, bright, juicy black cherry, backed by the slightest touch of smoky flavours.
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.
what is there to say about this mass-produced gem. Not as fruit juicy as I expected. Vegetal almost chinon approach. Some faint strawberry. Very smooth.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
Light in color, but much heavier in taste than earlier Pinot Noirs. Tanniny/sour/bitter at the end. Smokey smell.
Why do I feel like this is a guilty pleasure wine? It's cheap. It's everywhere. More importantly, it's smooth and good. For some reason, I'd like to not like it, but I do for some reason. what?
Nice light fruit notes. Great wine on it's own. Does not pair well with scallops.
Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Kim Crawford Pinot Noir Marlborough
Light, with pretty cherry and wild strawberry flavors on a tangy frame, lingering easily. Drink now through 2012.
Colour:Bright red with purple and crimson notes.Aroma:An enticingly aromatic wine showing notes of dark cherries and strawberries with the alluring complexity of well integrated oak.Palate:Vibrant, fresh fruit flavours underpinned by nuances of sweet, smoky oak. Good firm tannins give the wine length and weight. You can savour the wine long after it has left your palate.Food Match:Ideal with lamb or pork chops. Suited to most red meats and exceptionally good as a wine to enjoy all on its own!Cellar:Very approachable and enjoyable now, but you can cellar up to 5 years with confidence.
Palish red. Sweet red berries and spices on the nose. Ripe, high-toned and easygoing, with a creamy sweetness to the flavors of cherry and orange peel. I enjoyed this wineandrsquo;s seamless mid-palate texture but marked it down a bit for slightly dry tannins.
Frost trimmed the yields in 2005, seemingly adding an extra layer of concentration to this wine. While still not a heavyweight, it's a lush, layered wine with slightly meaty nuances to its plum and cola flavors. Good length on the finish.

Flavors of cherry and wild strawberry, silky tannins, and a light kiss of oak all hang in perfect balance here, and the finish lingers. Another in a string of tremendous efforts from one of the most talented Pinot Noir producers in New Zealand.
Light and appealing, with lots of mulberry, raspberry and gentle green herb flavors that linger on the smoothly polished finish. Drink now through 2007.
