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.

A little too bubbly for my taste, but has nice grassy flavors

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.

Very interesting taste and texture - it's got a wonderful rush of 'stonefruit', which reminds me of rocks, warm water and lush green. It's very easy to drink and you'll love the exciting taste.

Fragrant and complex, with a refreshing burst of lime, guava, grapefruit and grass flavors. Wet stone, passion fruit and oyster shell accents add interest, with bright acidity highlighting the vivid finish. Another outstanding Sauvignon from a perennial success. Drink now.

Elegant and vibrant, this mouthwatering wine offers lime and tequila flavors that are reminiscent of a margarita, but remains light, refined and distinctive. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

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.

Concentrated and very intense, weaving together a harmonious medley of crushed stone, grapefruit and nut flavors. Savory herbs, grass and lime notes highlight the bright, vibrant finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

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.


External Review

Pale yellow. Lemon and peppery herbs on the nose; slightly raw in a classic sauvignon way. Then juicy and tactile, with lightly herbaceous pepper and spice flavors but a rather round, even creamy, texture. Very sauvignon in its aromas and flavors but could have a bit more grip.
