Kim Crawford Wines, among the top-selling sauvignon blanc and New Zealand wine brands in the U.S., has announced its newest offering: Kim Crawford Signature Reserve Sauvignon Blanc.
This is the first release in the brand’s new luxury tier of wines. Available now, Kim Crawford Signature Reserve Sauvignon Blanc has a suggested retail price if $24.99 per 750-ml. bottle.
The 2017 vintage of Kim Crawford Signature Reserve Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from the lower Wairau, a region within Marlborough where the coastal climate keeps the vineyards frost-free and ripens fruit slowly and evenly, the company says. Each vineyard parcel is fermented separately in small lots, which the winemaking team blends together to create a complex expression of the best of Marlborough each year.
At 12% alcohol, Kim Crawford Signature Reserve Sauvignon Blanc has intense, lifted aromas of tropical fruit, the company says, leading to a range of complex flavors. The wine’s mineral notes and rich palate last through a clean and crisp finish.
