Rounded body and flavors. A little spicy and very fruity. Digging it!

Far more interesting than the monotone Sauvignon produced under Kim Crawford's name, this is his new project after selling his Winery (and name). Marlborough character without the citrus pith bitterness. There is juicy passion fruit and a pleasant mineral note adding to this wine's undeniable appeal

What can I say, I’m a sucker for tomato vine and watermelon. Kim Crawford has mastered this combination. Subtle complexity is the name of this game and I’m getting all kinds of wet stone, aforementioned fruits/plants and some nice peachy cleanness. Great long lasting finish.

Kim Crawford’s new project. A little more maloactic fermentation going on here which makes this much more tropical to the grassy, sharp KC original. Cantaloupe and melon are the stars here. Just a hint of grass and stone. It is extremely light - both in colour and feel - with notably less acidity than the original. Clearly, this wine should be served chilled, but I’d highly recommend consuming it a little warmer than most Sauvignon Blancs. For my palate, I prefer the ripping acidity and cleaner identity of the original.

Light, crisp, and full of fruit. Lemon, lime, with some herb notes. Would drink again.

Color is so light yellow green tone, almost transparent and bubble. Nose of roasted nuts, canned peach, ripe pineapple, honey and flowering note, and a bit Sprite note. Taste is bubbly, zesty, a bit tinkling spice, ripe fruit and honey note again. Slightly sweet and a bit minerals. Very clean and some more acidity backbone. After taste is light yet refreshing. I am wondering why the ratings from the community is literally too harsh.

Not as fruit forward. More subtle grapefruit and peach notes.
