Wine tasting notes

This is an exuberant Sauvignon Blanc with intense passion fruit, grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas. Juicy acidity fills the palate on first tasting and activates the taste buds with a gorgeous fruit sweetness that carries through to a long finish.

Winery information

Kim Crawford

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.

Vinification notes

Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit was crushed and the juice was drained for about three hours before the skins were pressed. Fermentation was long, slow and cool, with a yeast selected to express the grapes' grapefruit and passion fruit characteristics. Only the best blocks from the vineyard were eventually selected for the Small Parcels bottling, following a rigorous tasting selection. The wine was bottled early to retain freshness and purity of fruit.
