|Frederique rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:|
My favourite wine and I tried a lot of Sauvignon Blanc. Nothing can compare to this one!
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Crisp and zingy. Kim Crawford never disappoints. Aromatic heaven; peach, nectarine, guava, gooseberry and grass. Flavours show green apple, flint with a citrus kick. High yet well suited acidity matches herbed chicken, mussels and soft cheeses. Its approachability also makes it good on its own with friends. A standby favourite. 91 points - tasted June 2017
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A text book example of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc with aromas of tropical fruit, gooseberry and lemon with light herbaceous notes. The lemon and tropical flavours follow through on the palate along with some crisp mouthwatering acidity. This will pair well with seafood and creamy cheeses and it also delightful on its own.

I had the pleasure of meeting the winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst at an enlightening tasting in Ottawa on September 15th. I have new appreciation for the consistency for which this winemaker strives to make the signature Kim Crawford style of Sauvignon Blanc. This product represents the meticulous blending of 6 individually fermented Sauvignon Blancs from 6 geologically and microclimatically distinct vineyards.
Your nose is greeted with citrus, fresh grass, and a touch of guava. Upon first sip and swish flavours of lemon, fresh grass and guava meet your palate. This is a lean, crisp, medium bodied wine with a long lemony finish.

Winemakers at Kim Crawford seem to be dialing back the ripeness and opulence of the mainstream Sauv Blanc. This means less passionfruit and more steely citrus. More capsicum and less tropical notes. Still a gem of a wine. Well done. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)

|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A classic New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Tropical fruit, lemongrass and citrus notes dominate the nose with pineapple, lime and herb flavors being predominate on the palate. Had a nice crisp acidity. Perfect pairing with shellfish such as shrimp scampi.

The Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2015 is a wine you want to pair with your favourite seafood. Passion fruit, lemon, lime on the nose and palate. Tasted September 2016 (89/100)
|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This wine is an old favourite and a dependable purchase. There is a reason it is a Vintages Essential! The grapes are sourced from multiple sites in the Marlborough region to re-create the iconic Kim Crawford flavour profile from year to year: passion fruit, lime and zesty herbaciousness with zingy acidity. It keeps you coming back for more. Pair with seafood!

|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This is a classic wine and a great crowd pleaser! Aromas of tropical fruit and citrus on the nose (passion fruit and lime in particular), and a slight herbaceous note. Crisp acidity balanced with that citrus and tropical flavour on the palate. Refreshing and perfect for a variety of seafood dishes or cold appetizers.
