This 100% Sauvignon Blanc is another mutli-award-winning wine from New Zealand’s Kim Crawford. Created from grapes grown in Marlborough’s Wairu and Awatere Valleys, tropical fruit such as melon, passionfruit and pineapple dominate the aromas alongside hints of citrus. On the palate there is good weight and a very fruity character that is beautifully balanced by refreshing acidity and a fresh and lively finish.

SAUVIGNON BLANC is a white-wine grape from western France, now successfully grown in emerging and established wine regions all over the world. While widely associated with the Loire Valley, it is more likely to have originated from Bordeaux where it is typically blended with Semillon. The classic Sauvignon Blanc experience ranges from grass, nettles, blackcurrant leaf and asparagus to green apples and gooseberries.
KIM CRAWFORD WINES - Kim Crawford Wines was established in late 1996, when Kim and Erica Crawford launched a range made from fruit grown on the South Island. Now in the hands of Chief Winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst who trained under Kim Crawford. The current team of expert winemakers and viticulturalists continue the classic Crawford philosophy; prioritising quality, style and consistency above all else.
MARLBOROUGH, NEW ZEALAND's most important wine region, is situated at the north-eastern tip of the South Island. This dry sunny region consists of two parallel valleys, the Wairau and the Awatere, and produces around three-quarters of all New Zealand wine. It is particularly famous for its aromatic, zesty and highly-decorated Sauvignon Blanc, but Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling all thrive in Marlborough and in recent years its Pinot Noir has truly come of age.
