|Karen Anderson rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:|
This wine speaks to me of spring and summer. My nose gets first blush apricots all the way through to summer peaches. On the palate the finish has a surprising pineapple hit. When people say they like crisp wine, I think of this one.
Its a good "house white" and is fun for parties as it will appeal to many.
I'd like to go to New Zealand's Marlborough region to see the soil that delivers such fine sauvignon grapes.
Food: It went wonderfully with the spring pea and grilled shrimp risotto I made this evening.
I hope to drink this steadily till the day I die. I'll only lay it down when I finally lie down for good!

Every Kim Crawford wine I have tried so far, I have loved. And this one was no different. My favorite Sauvignon Blancs come out of the Marlborough Region of New Zealand and this is one of the examples why they are known for Sauvignon Blanc. A flavorful wine with beautiful acidity and lush tropical fruit flavors.
