Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Very pale yellow. Classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc aromas of lifted citrus, tropical fruit, and crushed herbs. A fresh, juicy wine with vibrant acidity and plenty of weight and length on the palate. Ripe, tropical fruit flavor with passion fruit, melon, and grapefruit.
Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.
"Grapefruit nose; juicy and bright citrus with a smooth, ripe hint of sweetness on the back of the palate. Layered and mellow, long and balanced." -91pts, Tasting Panel

|After a string of tough vintages that didn’t wear well on this famous brand’s Sauvignons, the latest release is back up to snuff. Heady notes of lime blossom, peach and gooseberry lead the pack, with subtle aromas of green bell pepper and dried herbs following, to remind you where you are in the Sauvignon Blanc world. In the mouth a creamy texture and fleshy fruit are freshened by lively acidity. Juicy lime on the finish makes it easy to take another sip, especially if a plate of sushi or spicy southeast Asian food is nearby.|
