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.

Definitely my favorite Sav Blanc. It's crisp with a lot of flavor.

Mildly grassy with lots of grapefruit. It's a clean tasting wine with a sense of the classic sauvignon blanc heritage.

Crisp, clean, and reminds one of grapefruits. Very light (but pleasant) grass and lemon flavors.

Graperuit taste. Perfect for a nice hot summer evening with friends. Actually, perfect for any evening with friends. Very light and fruity.

Perfectly balanced, delicious white that pairs well with delicate foods like salads and light fish. Also applaud his leading-edge choice in a screw-top enclosure.

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

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.

External Review

This brisk and lively sauvignon has a touch of fat to round it. The green herb scents are classic Marlborough, the finish fresh as ocean air. Chill it for oysters.

External Review

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.

External Review

Vibrant acidity plays with tropical fruit and a fresh grassiness. Soft and easy on the palate, a long full force finish that will leave you with banana and passion fruit on your mind.
