BACKGROUND: New Zealand’s pristine landscape, diverse soil types, and maritime climate with cool summers and mild winters create an ideal environment for growing wine grapes. The secret to Kim Crawford’s success is serious attention to detail in the vineyards and winery, with a special focus on sustainable practices, individual vineyard block harvesting, and small lot fermentation.
COLOR: Pale straw colour
AROMA: Wonderfully lifted tree fruit aromatics of ripe pear with floral notes and a touch of clove.
PALATE: The palate is ripe and rich with a good oily texture. The wine is well-balanced with a fresh acidity and a relatively crisp finish.
PAIRINGS: An ideal wine by itself or paired with antipasto, fresh seafood, or Southeast Asian cuisine.
