2007 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough

Kim Crawford has done it once again, with another delicious sauvignon blanc, and another great QPR! Marlborough really has figured out sauvignon blanc!
Twist off the cap and poured tonight at Tsukasa, this always pairs well with sushi! Upon first sniff, oddles and oodles of peach were prevelant on the nose, with hints of passion fruit, grapefruit, lemon, and pear. Other hints of straw and grass made their appearance known as well.
Tons of citrus on the palate, with hints of grapefruit, pineapple, peach, and pear. The finish was short, and showed a prevelant hint of green pepper.
Could this be our "Wine of the Summer" two years in a row? It's hard to say at the moment, but this is definitely one that we will consume by the caseload. Another great vintage from the Kim Crawford crew in New Zealand! 90 points. Cheers
