Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Spitfire Small Parcels 2012
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.
Decent Marlborough sauvignon blanc with loads of white grapefruit, lemon, and unripe peach. Nice floral nose, nice acidity and a decent finish.
Citrusy sauvignon blanc with a bit of carbonation. Good.
Nose of grapefruit and stone with orange blossom, apricot and just-mown grass. Balanced on the palate with tropical influence of passionfruit and apple and grapefruit. Rich texture. Crisp finish. 88 pts. 1/12/13
Citrus and floral strong
