More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Big aromas of ime, gooseberry, canned green vegetable and hay make this an great example of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc style. This is a wine that really can't be mistaken for anything else. The taste is lime, gooseberry, & pineapple and is quite consistent with previous vintages. This might have a touch more viscous mouth-feel. An excellent wine as usual.
Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful complex nose full of passion fruit, guava, interlaced with sweet herbal tones. Mouthwatering citrus, lemongrass, leading to a long tart fruit finish. Year after year, Kim Crawford manages to produce quality wines at a great price that are enjoyed by all.
Tasted August 2014. 90 points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

August 17, 2014: Pale straw, herbaceous notes of asparagus, canned beans surround a core of citrus and tropical fruit. Crisp with citrus lemon, grapefruit and apricot is mouthwatering with a long finish. Light bodied, this would work well with as a summer sipper, or try with salads with a citrus influence.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Delicious, classic example of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Pale colour, bright and tart notes of citrus, gooseberry and green apple on the nose and the palate. Acidic and refreshing, tart lime flavour comes through as well. Yum!
Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Consistent quality and typicity for this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. All of the boxes are ticked: citrus, grass, zest, green apple, fresh green pepper and yes, catty.
Acidity is mouthwatering. This is a steely and crisp wine. Bone dry.
Enjoy today with your favourite summer salad or well chilled on it's own.
Tasted: August 2014

Classic NZ Sauvignon blanc. Gooseberry, peach candy, pineapple and white flower. Mouthwatering acidity. Nice seafood wine.
