Kim Crawford Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc 2017

100% Sauvignon Blanc from an outstanding small block called the Awatere Hills Vineyard in the Blind River sub-region, south of Marlborough’s Awatere Valley.

Fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed, then fermented at very cool temperatures to allow the site to fully express its sense of place in the glass. Only the best blocks from the vineyard were eventually selected, following a rigorous selection process. Bottled early to retain freshness and purity of fruit.

Winemaker's Comments

Amazingly powerful aromas, distinctively Marlborough. Lemon meringue pie, sweet passionfruit, melon and tropical fruits with hints of crushed tomato leaf. Intense complex flavours of citrus balanced with ripe tropical fruits of passionfruit and white peach. Crisp acidity and a lingering finish round out this stunning wine.
