Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc wine is beautifully bright, pale lemon in the glass. Pink grapefruit, passion fruit, frangipani, and pineapple aromas wow the senses. Full of flavour, balanced by mouth-watering acidity and a fresh, zesty finish.
The grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to 15 years bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour.
Summer 2013 was delightful, with heat summation marginally above the long term average and lots of beautiful sunny days. Notably however, the mean daily temperatures during mid-summer were below the long-term average, providing an idyllic sunny and dry growing environment, without excessive heat. Marlborough was fortunate to receive intermittent rainfall throughout the growing season, which warded off the severe drought conditions experienced by much of the country.
The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavour and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations were carried out at low temperatures and when all tanks had completed fermentation they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled. It comes with the vintage information as follows: Vintage: 2013; Grape varieties: 100% Sauvignon Blanc; Region: Marlborough; Winemaker: Anthony Walkenhorst; Closure: Stelvin; Alcohol (ABV): 12.5%; Acidity: 7.5g/l; Residual Sugar: 5g/l; Wine pH: 3.32; Bottle Sizes: 37.5cl, 75cl.
From the manufacturer
Kim Crawford Wines
Kim Crawford Wines have a life of their own, and the memory of Kim and Erica Crawford, who put a lot of time and energy into selling their wines in inventive ways, lives on, especially in the UK. Kim Crawford Wines was established in late 1996, when Kim launched a range made from fruit grown in the South Island.
Kim sold the company to Constellation in 2005 and has since handed the winemaking reins over to the Constellation winemaking team led by chief winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst. Despite Kim Crawford no longer being involved with these wines, the current winemakers continue the classic Crawford philosophy and style. Control over grape supply has always been essential for this range and Constellation continues to maintain good contacts with growers in the region, ensuring consistency of quality and style.
The roots of Kim Crawford Wines reach back to 1996 when Kim Crawford and his wife Erica fell in love with the idea of starting a winery. Determined to develop their passion into a reality, Kim and Erica ran the company from a spare room of their home in Central Auckland, New Zealand. Without owning grapevines or tanks, Kim and Erica produced their first 4,000 cases and thereby established Kim Crawford Wines. With incredible speed, Kim Crawford’s powerful, aromatic wines began winning awards and gained a devoted, even fanatical, following. Only two years after launch, Kim Crawford Wines began exporting to the United States. Within four years, the company moved into a state-of-the-art winery in Marlborough and began looking at vineyards to purchase and cultivate.
Just six years after these humble beginnings, Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc made the 2003 Wine Spectator's Top 100 List to roaring acclaim. It made the Top 100 list again in 2005–and then again in 2006 and 2008. And it was also in 2008 that Wine Spectator awarded our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc with a prestigious ranking of 90+ points...for the seventh year in a row. Today we’re the #1 New Zealand wine in the United States.

So so good that I seriously cried a little on that first mouthful.
Then I pulled my pansy ass together and necked the bottle.
That was a good night.
