Product Description

Made from grapes selected from vineyards in Marlborough's Wairau and Awatere Valleys, Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is an exuberant New Zealand wine brimming with fruity sweetness and juicy acidity for a balanced flavor profile that wine connoisseurs will adore. The finish is zesty and fresh, lingering on the tongue with its citrusy aromas and characteristic herbaceous notes. The long-established Wairau Valley and its neighboring Awatere Valley are situated at the northeastern tip of the South Island, a dry, sunny region that produces most of New Zealand's wine. This region features fast-draining loams that are ideal for growing grapes. In fact, the area is particularly famous for its zesty, pungent Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Vines are varied in age, bringing a mix of youthful vigor and a mature depth of flavor to each bottle of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc. It's no wonder the wine has garnered high marks from some of the world's most important wine critics. Expect a light straw color with yellow and green hues to match the herbaceous and tropical qualities of the wine. Each sip brings forth a plethora of fruit flavors, including apricot, nectarine, passion fruit and honeysuckle. Best of all, the wine continues to develop from one to three years after bottling, only getting better with age. As such, it's a wonderful wine to drink anytime with friends or simply when you want to reward yourself after a long day. Pair it with asparagus, fresh oysters, summer salads or lobster to highlight the flavors and savor an unbeatable experience.

Drizly Expert Notes

Get a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc in your hand and it's easy to understand why it's perhaps the most recognized New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc in the country. In 1996, an era dominated by heavily-oaked Chardonnays, from inside a small, ramshackle farm house, Kim Crawford devoted himself to creating something just the opposite—powerful, refreshing and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc. And wine drinkers around the world were into it. Within two years he began exporting to the United States, and within four he purchased a real-deal winery. After many 90+ Wine Spectator scores and at least one prestigious spot in their yearly Top 100, Kim Crawford has earned it's position as America's go-to Sauvignon Blanc.

This wine's intense aromatics can interrupt a conversation from across the room: Grapefruit, lemon-lime, spicy honeysuckle, fleshy apricot, nectarines, newly mowed grass, passion fruit and, at times, fresh fennel. The palate confirms these smells, with a sharp entry that cuts through any taste you may have encountered beforehand.

Enjoy this wine in small, slender white wine glasses. The cooler the temperature, the crisper it will seem. Or try it slightly warmer to notice more fruit and nuance. This wine doesn't need food—in fact it's great for a refresh after breaking a sweat in the yard or moving something heavy—but it adds a little something when you're eating fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster and summer salads.
