    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pale straw with touches of green. Delightful hints of tropical fruits are accented by aromas of citrus and the traditional New Zealand herbaceous notes. Ripe stone fruit, citrus and tropical flavors mingle with the soothing herbaceous notes. Nice acidity with a touch of sweet passion fruit add to the full, crisp finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

    Fragrant and complex, with a refreshing burst of lime, guava, grapefruit and grass flavors. Wet stone, passion fruit and oyster shell accents add interest, with bright acidity highlighting the vivid finish. Another outstanding Sauvignon from a perennial success. Drink now.

    This medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc strums the right chords, combining notes of crushed tomato leaf with citrusy fruit to make a pretty melody. A hint of creaminesss rounds out the midpalate, and the wine finishes long, with pristine cleanliness.

    We opened this bottle last night with dinner, and it was fantastic! I highly recommend it at this price. Highly aromatic nose. Grapefruit, passionfruit, lime, grass, and minerality. It lines your glass with beautiful little bubbles and almost jumps out of the glass at you with flavor and aroma. I will definitely order it again.

    This wine is full of flavor. Grapefruit, grass, crisp and clean. My favorite sauvignon blanc, better than more expensive wines.

    Hard to beat the value you get from this wine. Definitely pretty citrusy but not overpowering grapefruit taste like some other Sauvignon Blancs I've had. It blends well with the accompanying grassy flavor. Still one of my favorite Sauvignon Blancs.

    The 2008 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is incredible! It captures the strong citrus and acidic flavors that make you wonder what you’ve been missing from other white wines. It grabs your taste buds and slaps them around silly and leaves them begging for more of this great, tasty white wine. There’s a reason why this perennial favorite of mine shows up on just about every wine menu around the world, and why it shows up on the “best of” lists year after year. It’s just that good! http://www.winelife365.com/wine-review-2008-kim-crawford-sauvignon-blanc/

    Year after year, the Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc is the best Sauvignon Blanc you can buy under $20. The wine is very approachable to all palates and has a great crisp and refreshing citrus taste that pairs perfectly with summer.
