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.
External Reviews for Kim Crawford Tietjen Gisborne Chardonnay
Ripe and aromatic, a smooth-textured mouthful of pear and exotic spices, finishing round and generous. Drink now through 2002.
This is an oaky Chard. Opens with a trumpet blast of buttered toast, vanilla and smoke. Very ripe fruit: pineapple, mango, and nectarine. Superrich and extracted, California in style, but with blazing acidity. Has a nice tang of iron or flint or some other mineral in the dry, long finish.
A lush marriage of tropical fruit and toast, coconut and vanilla notes, this is a big, ripe creamiscle of a wine, finishing with a flourish of oak.
This delicious New Zealand beauty is rich and full on the palate, with good intensity and balance. Flavors are a medley of tropical fruit - especially mango - with a touch of ripe green apple and a paring of fig.
