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.

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.

Simple fruit flavors of golden pear balance this wine's malty scents of lees. It's a clean, grapey white for crawfish.

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.

Straw yellow in color. Rich butterscotch with hints of ripe stonefruit and citrus. An approachable and full bodied Chardonnay that shows great length and persistence. Ripe stonefruit and malolactic characters show through well in a style uncluttered by oak.

The 2007 Marlborough Unoaked Chardonnay has a lovely floral nose with hints of mango and guava, the palate simple and straightforward, clean and focused with a touch of honeysuckle towards the finish.

Poached pear, roasted yellow apple and lemon skin flavors have very good concentration. Drink now.
