Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough

Kim Crawford Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc

Always delivering outstanding wines, the Growing Horizon Vineyard—located in the Central Wairau sub-region of Marlborough—was selected as the first single-vineyard vintage Spitfire since 2005. The vineyard is planted on alluvial loam soil allowing the vines to produce a big lush canopy, which actively grows during the season. These very rich soils result in super-healthy vines, which produce grapes with maximum flavour. The vines are relatively young and produce wines with great intensity.

A complex wine with ripe tropical fruit flavours balanced by herbaceousness, goosberry and crisp acidity. A superb reflection of Marlborough.

Food Pairings

A wine to suit full-flavoured seafood dishes such as pan-seared scallops or crayfish.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Light pale straw.

Aroma: Amazingly powerful aromas, distinctively Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Lemon meringue pie, sweet passion fruit, melon, and tropical fruits with hints of crushed tomato leaf.

Palate: Intense complex flavours of citrus balanced with ripe tropical fruits of passion fruit and white peach. Crisp acidity and a lingering finish round out this stunning wine.

Cellar: Drink now and up to three years.
