BRYDEN HIGHLIGHTS KIM CRAWFORD WINES
Monday 23rd June 2014

As we approach the summer months and the heat gets unbearable many of us make the switch from drinking red wines to white wines. The thought of a refreshing COLD glass of Sauvignon Blanc is quite tempting. Here is some news on one of our top brands from New Zealand – Kim Crawford. The Kim Crawford wines–Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir--can now be purchased at the Epicurean Supermarket on Friars Hill Road.
  
Kim Crawford is the U.S. market's largest New Zealand wine brand achieving impressive double-digit volume growth despite its relatively upscale price point.  After growing 23.8% in 2012, Kim Crawford reached 685,000 cases last year.

For those of you are interested in the Vinification process of this superb Sauvignon Blanc here is a bit of information for your reading pleasure. 
 
VINIFICATION
These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough.’s Wairau Valley and the neighboring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly sub soils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age from 18 months to fifteen years bringing a mix of youthful vigor and depth of flavour. The grapes were machine harvested in the cool of the evening and overnight to preserve flavours and pressed immediately with minimal skin contact. Each block was kept separate throughout the various stages of the winemaking process. Fermentations were carried out at cool temperatures and when all tanks had completed ferment they were proportionately blended, fined, stabilised and bottled. All these factors have resulted in the plethora of fruit flavours, crisp acidity and complexity of this stunning wine.
 
NOSE
Citrus and tropical fruits backed by characteristic herbaceous notes that Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for.
 
PALATE
An exuberant wine brimming with flavours of pineapple, passionfruit, stonefruit and a hint of herbaceousness. The finish is fresh, zesty and lingering.
 
CELLARING
Ready for immediate enjoyment, this wine will continue to develop over 3-4 years.
 
FOOD MATCH
Good to drink with anyone at anytime. Ideally suited to fresh oysters, asparagus dishes, lobster or summer salads.
