Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is widely regarded as setting a global standard for this variety. A combination of dry and moderate climates gives near perfect cool climate growing conditions and assists with the intense varietal characters unique to Marlborough.
Deriving from the French word sauvage ("wild") and blanc (“white”) Kim Crawford's Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp and powerful, well balanced wine with intense aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit and citrus flavours. This light to medium bodied aromatic wine is a great match with salads, seafood and vegetarian dishes and perfectly acceptable to be enjoyed on its own!
Grapes from all over the Marlborough Region are used in this blend where vineyards are selected by flavour profile for desired outcome. We tend towards the more herbaceous end of the flavour profile, ensuring Marlborough's typicity is retained.
Fruit is night harvested, when the temperatures are cool to minmise oxidation, making it easier to manage in the winery. After that, we tinker as little as possible, letting the vine and the flavour speak, gently guiding it through the course of the winemaking process.
