Happy Hour: 2009 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc

Last month, I was floored by the drinkability of Babich's 2009 Sauvignon Blanc, and I've been obsessed with Marlborough Sauvignon Blancs ever since. Marlborough is New Zealand's premiere region for the grape; the sunny, cool, maritime climate is ideal for producing crisp, herbal wines.

A grocer at Trader Joe's recommended Kim Crawford to me, calling it "the standard" for New Zealand Sauv Blanc, and I have to agree with her. Its innocent straw color is deceptive; one sip reveals an intense, concentrated wine with grass, green apple, pear, and guava notes. The finish is off-dry, but leaves a memorable, lingering acidity at the back of the tongue.

For $15, an everyday white doesn't get much better than this. Have you ever tried Kim Crawford? What's your go-to white?

I am obessed with them as well! Marlborough Savs are my favorite summer wine! Kim Crawford is my least favorite of them. Brancott and Starborough are my favorites.

@Segat1, you took the words out of my mouth - Oyster Bay is my fav. Most of the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc are good including Kim Crawford. I did a tasting when I was in New Zealand but some of them you can't find in the US.

Kim Crawford Sav Blanc is one of my go tos! Been drinking it (and all the other Marlborough Sav Blancs I find) for years — pleases everyone and so easy to drink.
