The Sauvignon Blanc grapes for Kim Crawford come from 100% Marlborough vineyards, ranging in age, up to 15 years, bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavor. The aromas exhibit intense tropical fruit and fresh cut grass notes while the palate bursts with passionfruit, citrus and ripe stonefruit flavors. This is an exuberant and expressive wine that pairs well with fresh seafood, goat cheese salad or on its own. The current winemaker, Anthony Walkenhorst, joined Kim Crawford in 2005, working alongside the founder Kim Crawford before taking the reigns.

Wine EnthusiastAfter a string of tough vintages that didn't wear well on this famous brand's Sauvignons, the latest release is back up to snuff. Heady notes of lime blossom, peach and gooseberry lead the pack, with subtle aromas of green bell pepper and dried herbs following, to remind you where you are in the Sauvignon Blanc world. In the mouth a creamy texture and fleshy fruit are freshened by lively acidity. Juicy lime on the finish makes it easy to take another sip, especially if a plate of sushi or spicy southeast Asian food is nearby.
