Kim Crawford 'SP' Spitfire

Sauvignon Blanc, 2011

New Zealand White

Marlborough 75cl

This is a single vineyard 'smalll parcel' from Kim Crawford. The back label did not inspire me, mentioning 'inherently sweet tropical fruit flavours'. Aromatic and perfumed with gooseberry and tropical fruit on the nose. It's crisp and fresh with lime and elderflower, gooseberry, mango and passion fruit. It is what it says a really tropical style with some residual sugar, i have to say it's not my style but bound to have some fans. It is crisp and fresh but i find the sweetness and tropical fruit too much. Well made in it's style.
