Kim Crawford 'Unoaked' Chardonnay 2017

Winemaker's Notes:

f you like Chardonnay with true expression of fruit then this is one to love! This wine does not hide behind any oak. It’s a crisp wine that tastes of the succulence and freshness of the grape. An approachable and full-bodied Chardonnay that shows great length and persistence. Ripe stonefruit, butterscotch, and citrus characters show through well, in a style uncluttered by oak. -Wine Maker's Notes

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.

Fruity and acidic with a smooth finish. Everything I look for in a good white.

Nicely balanced fruit to acidity. First unoaked chard that I didn't feel was trying to imitate SB.

The 2012 version of this wine no longer carries the Marlborough appellation as the older ones did. It just says East Coast. It is a blend of Hawke's Bay and Marlborough. The result is not a good one. This wine is a shadow of the previous wines. There is almost no fruit and the finish is short. Nice color and good acid balance though. My rating -- 80. It is priced as if it were the Marlborough wine and I find that a bit deceptive.

Decent NZ unoaked chardonnay. Middle of the road with some nice citrus flavors, a little spice, a bit of creaminess and a decent finish. Not overly complex but a good QPR.

Nice unoaked New Zealand Chardonnay. Good, clean, crisp citrus fruits with some minerality. Some complexity makes this a bit better than the normal $10-15 bottles.

Simple fruit flavors of golden pear balance this winersquo;s malty scents of lees. Itrsquo;s a clean, grapey white for crawfish.

Soft, with a creamy texture and delicate pear, peach and citrus flavors. Appealing for its light touch and details of spice and floral notes. Drink now.

This is a plump, fruit-driven Chardonnay loaded with apple and citrus. The winersquo;s medium body and crisp, clean finish should prove versatile with a wide array of foods.

Green pear, dried yellow apple and wet stone nuances have good concentration, with tart lemon rind and a hint of balsamic in the finish. Drink now.

Bright and lively. A lean, fragrant style that offers lime, melon and hints of spice as the finish lingers deftly. Drink now through 2013.
