Vintages Wine Panel: Vintage after vintage, the world-renowned Kim Crawford displays his winemaking prowess with Sauvignon Blanc. This version exhibits aromas such as gooseberry, asparagus, nettle, tomato leaf and citrus. My note: One of my favorite Sauvignon Blanc producers from New Zealand. This is a lovely white with herbal and green fuit aromas. Lively and vivacious. Closed with a screwcap, but opens with a smile. This wine is part of the Vintages Essentials Collection.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: monkfish with tomato and fresh herbs, steamed mussels.

Bella Mcdowell rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Kim Crawford 2008 Sauvignon Blanc pours a pale yellow and opens up with aromas of citrus and grass. On the palate, the wine is well-balanced with nice acidity. There are flavors of lime, grapefruit, and a hint of herb with a crisp, lively finish. This may be one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I have tasted from New Zealand and it’s hard to believe it is readily available for under $20. This is a great wine and would pair well with your summer salads and seafood dishes. Grab a bottle and enjoy it with a sunny afternoon…cheers!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
