Redolent of cut grass, fruit, and herbs. The color is a pale straw yellow with tints of green. The taste is full of grapefruit and limes- not overwhelming like some NZ Sauvignon Blanc wines. The taste is crisp, yet has a bit of softness on the palate. It is a well-balanced wine. The finish is refreshing and zesty.

Sehr helle Farbe, intensives Aroma von Zitrusfrüchten, Paprika, und tropischen Früchten. Im Gaumen frisch und fruchtig und markanter Säure im Abgang. Klassiker des schlanken, finessenreichen Stils. Hunter’s Erfolgswein, insbesondere in den wärmeren Tagen ein exotischer Genuss!

Vintage after vintage Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is consitently delicious. Grapes are selected from vineyards in Marlborough.’s Wairau Valley and the neighboring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks of grapes are kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations are carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had completed ferment the blending takes place to create the best wine possible. A terrific value.

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.

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.

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.

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

Saline, citrus, minty and smoky aromas, along with a suggestion of sake. Then round and fleshy in the mouth, but with penetrating flavors of gooseberry, mint and fresh herbs. A confusing blend of thickness of texture and very dry, penetrating flavors. Finishes with a slight sour edge.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is widely regarded as setting a global standard for this variety. A combination of dry and moderate climates gives near perfect cool climate growing conditions and assists with the intense varietal characters unique to Marlborough. This wine evokes lifted aromatics of tropical fruits combined with the traditional nettle and herbaceous aromas of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The palate's firm acidity is surrounded by tropical fruits and herbaceous notes with hints of citrus sneaking in. A whopping mouthful of Marlborough. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads.
