Kim Crawford produces one of Marlborough’s benchmark Sauvignon Blancs and has been named in the "Wine Spectator Top 100” four times. The secret to Kim Crawford’s success is serious attention to detail in the vineyards and winery, with a special focus on sustainable practices, individual vineyard block harvesting, and small lot fermentation.
Very pale yellow in colour, this is a classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of lifted citrus, tropical fruit, and crushed herbs. A fresh, juicy wine with vibrant acidity and plenty of weight and length on the palate. Ripe, tropical fruit flavor with passion fruit, melon, and grapefruit. Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.
91 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine The 2021 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is spot-on, showing excellent typicity and richness. This wine offers aromas and flavors of dried herbs, grapefruit peel, and mineral notes. Enjoy it with a plate of raw oysters and freshly-squeezed lemon.
89 Points - Wine Spectator Appealing for its focus, showing a fresh lemongrass edge to its core of lemon-lime flavors, with a sleek and juicy frame. Drink now.
