2010 Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc


Wine: Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc
Producer: Kim Crawford
Vintage: 2010    Varietal(s): Sauvignon Blanc
Cost: $15
Quality: 92 | Excellent

Light straw in color. The nose bursts of grapefruit followed by lemon zest and cut grass. The palate is very fruit forward showing plenty of citrus, grasses, and some minerals. Very bright with lots of complexity, crisp acidity, with a long finish. Excellent.

Buzz: A once small producer who has been making excellent whites from New Zealand for many years; they have become a much bigger brand in the process. I found this at Costco for under $15 which makes this an absolute bargain for an excellent example of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.  Recommended.

Availability: Widely Available. Local grocers, Costco, etc.
