Kim Crawford Riesling Marlborough Dry 2008
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.

Intense aromatics with citrus and grapefruit complexed with hints of honey and spice. Explosion of fruit flavors citrus honey and even some peach. Great minerality in the wine is balanced with a hint of sweetness.
Colour:Palest green.Aroma:Wonderful lifted aromas of citrus, honey and apple blossom.Palate:A citrus burst is immediately obvious on the palate. A lively little wine with good structure, palate weight and persistence.Food Match:An ideal aperitif or suited to delicate fusion foods.Cellar:Great now and can only get better. Will keep up to 10 years with careful cellaring.
A stalwart of the New Zealand Riesling firmament, Kim Crawfordrsquo;s 2006 version is a solid effort that boasts some beautiful pink-grapefruit aromas and flavors. Ultimately, this lacks a bit of complexity, but it nicely balances sugar and acid in a plump, easy-to-drink wine with no hard edges.
Shows very good intensity to lemon-lime, green apple and mineral accents. Drink now.

Green leafy notes combine with mouthwatering ripe apple and lime scents on the nose of this crisp, stylish Riesling. It's reasonably full-bodied at 12.5% alcohol but dry, finishing fresh and minerally.
