KIM CRAWFORD Sauvignon Blanc 'Small Parcels Spitfire' 2016

Blind River Vineyard in the Awatere Valley was selected for this bottling. The sheltered vineyard is situated in the valley floor with 50% north/south row orientation and 50% east/west orientation. The east/west rows produced a broad range of flavorful ripe fruit. The wine expresses ripe, full aromatics of peach, papaya, mango, strawberry, candied lime, and lemon zest. The palate shows more pepper along with the prickle of kiwi, heat of capsicum, and round richness of stone fruit. The acid, while balanced and sufficient, is mellow and approachable.
