I love this wine. Like love love love it. Next time you are invited to a BBQ and you don't know a good wine to bring, grab this one. Its light, fruity, very summery and is about 20 bucks. Once you open the bottle smell it, you'll instantly will be happy you bought it.

Kim Crawford 2008 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

Wild at Heart:
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”) ours is a crisp an powerful, well balanced wine with intense aromas of gooseberry, passion fruit and citrus flavours. This light to medium bodied aromatic wine to match with salads, seafood and vegetarian dishes and a perfectly acceptable quaffer!

Tasting Notes
Colour: Pale green.
Aroma: Lifted aromatics of tropical fruits combined with the traditional nettle and herbaceous aromas of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
Palate: Firm acidity is surrounded by tropical fruits and herbaceous notes with hints of citrus sneaking in. A whopping mouthful of Marlborough.
Cellar: Ready to drink now, however this wine will continue to develop for 2-3 years.
Food Match: Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads.
