Reviews and Ratings

Douglas 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.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Always a favourite. Classic NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp with grapefruit citrus, asparagus, green beans, guava, fresh grass and cut pineapple skin fruitiness. These are brightly reflected and echoed on the palate with green apple and tangy nectarine. Acidity is high and mouthwatering, balanced perfectly with a dry fruit forward finish. Pair with herbed pork bites and coleslaw. 91 points - Tasted May 2016

Crisp and delightful with fresh cut grass and tropical fruit on the nose and lime, grapefruit and guava on the palate. The finish is tart and refreshing.
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 Havers - WSET Level 3 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 Advanced 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.

Classic NZ Sauvignon blanc. Gooseberry, peach candy, pineapple and white flower. Mouthwatering acidity. Nice seafood wine.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Pale straw colour with touches of green and aromas of cut grass and tropical fruits. The palate unfolds with flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry and subtle herbaceousness. A mouthfilling wine with good texture, cleansing acidity and great length

Couleur de paille pâle avec des teintes vertes et des arômes d’herbe coupée et de fruits tropicaux. Son palais se développe avec des saveurs de fruit de la passion, de groseilles et d’herbacées subtiles. Un vin qui remplit la bouche avec une bo
