Kim Crawford Pinot Noir Marlborough Anderson Vineyard 2007
New Zealand is now acknowledged as one of the few countries to have successfully come to grips with this fickle, but supremely aristocratic grape variety. A combination of dry and moderate climates gives near perfect cool climate growing conditions and assists with the intense varietal characters in Marlborough grapes. This wine puts the NOIR into Pinot; a fine combination of dark cherries and red fruit abound. This is a fruit focused and velvety wine with rich flavours and soft tannins. Lean meats such as veal, venison or turkey, are a great match.
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 Pinot Noir Marlborough Anderson Vineyard
Medium-bodied, with juicy cherry, blackberry and ripe strawberry fruit. There's just a touch of oak to give this new world Pinot depth and complexity. The lingering notes of earth and wood entice you to take another sip.
Light and appealing, with lots of mulberry, raspberry and gentle green herb flavors that linger on the smoothly polished finish. Drink now through 2007.
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.
For the price, this is a good introduction to NZ Pinot Noir, showing a smooth mouthfeel and smoky. briary complexities layered over tangy beet and cherry fruit.

It's a simple, fruit-driven Pinot, but it's well done in its idiom, with black cherry fruit carried by a plump mouthfeel and supple tannins. Finishes crisp, making it versatile at the table and worth trying with salmon or tuna. Drink now.
Light and refined, with earthy, peppery cherry flavors that echo on the fine-grained finish. Drink now through 2004.
