Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Light straw with yellow and green hues. Aroma: Citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes for which Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned. Palate: An exuberant wine brimming with juicy acidity and fruit sweetness, providing a balanced flavor profile. The finish is fresh, zesty, and lingering. Cellar: All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavors, crisp acidity, and complexity of this stunning wine. Ready for immediate enjoyment, this wine will continue to develop from one to three years. Food Pairing: Great to drink with anyone at any time. Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.

Kim Crawford Wines:
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.

Very much what you'd expect from a NZ Savu blanc, loads of white grapefruit with a touch of lemon pith, decent acidity and a medium finish.

Pale green. A bouquet of citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is famous for. An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple and stonefruit with a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh and zesty.

Tongue-gripping acidity with loads of citrus flavors. Peach and nectarine flavors round out the citrus; grassy undertones. Finishes long and dry.

An appealing note of ripe peach complements the core of crisp lemon and lime flavors, with a touch of peppery white flowers. Shows nice focus and persistence on the finish. Drink now. 550,000 cases imported.

Marlborough, New ZealandKim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent expression of the Marlborough appellation of New Zealand. Owner/winemaker Kim Crawford produced his first wines under the Kim Crawford label in 1996, following stints with other wineries in South Africa, California, Australia and New Zealand. Kim's winemaking philosophy is straightforward: "With every wine I make, I aim to let the natural flavour of the grape flow through into the final product. New Zealand grapes benefit from a natural fruitiness. My role as winemaker is to make sure that this succulence and richness is abundantly present in the wine you pour from the bottle." Bravo! Wine Spectator rated this vintage 89 points.Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is produced from grapes selected from various low-yielding vineyards in the Wairau, Brancott, Waihoepai and Awatere valleys. It is pale straw in color with touches of green. Classic Sauvignon characters of cut grass and tropical fruits are dominant on the nose. The palate unfolds with flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry and subtle herbaceousness. The wine is mouthfilling with good texture and finishes well with cleansing acidity and great length.Enjoy Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc over the next 4-5 years with asparagus, oysters and summer salads.
