Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of tropical fruit and citrus on the nose - classic notes of freshly cut grass, gooseberry - lime and crisp lemon zest on the palate. Really a broad spectrum here...Good acidity. Great value.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Kim Crawford's ultra popular Sauvignon Blanc is a textbook example of expressive Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is full of sweet passion fruit, guava, and citrus, all interlaced with fresh herbal notes. Mouthwatering citrus and sweet lemongrass leads to a long tart fruit finish. Year after year, Kim Crawford manages to produce some of the world's most popular wines at the most competitive prices. Enjoy with crisp summer salads with creamy goat cheese, asparagus risotto with seared scallops, or fresh oysters on the half shell. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Alex & Priya rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Alex: Red pepper, gooseberry and lime zest nose, quite restrained for Marlborough! Hint of guava, light streamlined palate makes this a good summer sipper and wine to pair with salads. Not as intense as other styles, which I like. 83 pts.

Priya: Smells a bit like cat's pee, which, as you probably know - is not my favorite. For a sauvignon blanc, I'd be ok having a glass of this, but I'm still not convinced with Sauvignon Blanc! 83 pts

Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This New Zealand Sauvignon is an excellent value at $10. This wine offers you classic SB that you have come to love. Crisp, clean, mouthwatering acidity and aromas of fresh grass, gooseberry, citrus,herbal, stony minerality and cattiness. The length is long and tropical. Serve well chilled. Sip on it's own or pair with salads, soft cheeses, grilled veggies, veggie burger. Price performer.

Jane Staples rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A bright nose with tropical gooseberry, citrus and a touch of guava. The palate shows pineapple, passionfruit, guava and lime. Crisp mouth-watering mouthfeel, with a long citrus gooseberry finish. It's hard to beat the Crawfords when it comes to Sauv Blanc!




Natalie's Review

Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2014, Marlborough, South Island, New Zealand: Winemaker Anthony blends different vineyard parcels of the grapes, like they do in Champagne to create more complexity and interesting flavours. Signature New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, with laser balance and refreshment. Classic aromas of chives, lime, lemon and fresh-cut grass. Perfect for a wide range of dishes, from vegetarian to shellfish.

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.
