Food Pairings for Kim Crawford Sp Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc Spitfire Mkii
This is a wonderful sauv blanc! My favorite to date! Wonderful citrus flavors, acidic, just the right fruitiness. Everything a good sauv blanc is supposed to have, this one has it.
This wine derives its name from the vineyard, the Delta, which was used as an air force training base during World War 2. It is seldom that a single vineyard gives a full spectrum of flavours to make a complete wine. When optimum ripeness was established by the viticultural team, the grapes were machined harvested without preservative and immediately processed. Cold settled for 36 hours the juice was then racked and inoculated with yeast. A temperature-controlled fermentation ensured that the Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc vitality was harnessed. Once dry the wine was stabilised and bottled. This is hugely aromatic and intense with nettle, sweat, grapefruit and tropical notes, which are underscored with the typical herbaceousness - all characteristics of good quality Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.The palate is powerful with sweat, dry herbs, gooseberry and tropical fruits. Full flavoured, the wine’s inherent sweet fruit characters are dried nicely by the alcohol and acidity. Great longevity of flavour.
