When it comes to Sauvignon Blanc the Marlborough region in New Zealand really is a standout on the world stage. In fact American wine critic, George M. Taber, noted 'No other region in the world can match Marlborough, the northeastern corner of New Zealand's South Island, which seems to be the best place in the world to grow Sauvignon Blanc grapes.'

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc from Kim Crawford is pale straw in color with hints of yellow and lime green shades also noticeable. It has intense aromas of tropical fruits, passion fruit pulp and cut grass. On the palate there are immediate citrus fruit flavors followed by a noticeable splash of passion fruit as well as a hint of peach in the background. It is quintessentially Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc but without being too over the top in the elements that can occasionally turn people off Sauvignon Blancs from this region.

This is a high quality white wine that Sauvignon Blanc lovers will very much enjoy. To those who may not have had any examples from this part of the world this wine is a great start and worth seeking out. It is an absolute steal at $11 for club members of supermarkets like Vons, Pavilions and Ralphs. The winery suggests pairing it with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.
