Refreshing and crisp, with grassy, citrus, and tropical fruit notes. Herbaceous, but with juicy tropical fruits. Long finish. A great warm weather wine!
Crisp, tropical and so easy to enjoy. I always have a bottle of this on hand. Tastes of grass, grapefruit and peppers.
Very good bottle. My wife loves this stuff.
External Reviews for Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Awatere Valley
Shows hints of green on the nose, but the focus in this vintage is on riper, more tropical flavors. Soft and easy to drink, with an edgy shot of lime on the finish.
Concentrated and complex, with vivid passion fruit, grapefruit and tangy peach flavors. Vibrant minerality and tangy lime juice acidity keep thumping through the finish. Drink now.
The iconic New Zealand winery's Sauvignon Blanc hits all the right notes in 2007, featuring lush stone-fruit flavors accented by less ripe note of fresh herbs and capsicum. A fine apéritif, or try served with herb-seasoned shellfish. Drink now and over the next six months.
The 2007 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was batch fermented at low temperatures and delivers a subtle, herbaceous nose with a lime-tinged entry, good acidity and citrus mid-palate with hints of passion fruit towards the spicy finish.
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.
Pale, bright color. Subtle aroma of licorice and flowers. Lush, round and sweet, with moderate intensity and good texture to its slightly herbaceous flavors. A fairly full, soft style.
This white shows lush tropical fruit aromas with key lime and a touch of green bell pepper. The round fruit is evenly balanced with good acidity on the palate to keep everything fresh.
These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough9s 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 were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to fifteen years bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavour. The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavours and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations were carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had completed ferment they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled. All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavours, crisp acidity and complexity of this stunning wine.
An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple, passionfruit, stonefruit and a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh, zesty and lingering.
