Wine Entry : Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2005(New Zealand)

Was suppose to have drunk this wine at a BBQ, but we were too full and this bottle has been kept in my fridge for sometime (pardon the torn label). It was pretty close to the typical Sauvignon Blancs from NZ priced at a nice S$28. The closure is screw cap and in the glass a pale sunlight beam yellow.

Smell : Citrus, lemon, cucumber and freshly cut hay.

Taste : Infusion of citrus, grassy feel in the mouth.

After-taste : Crisp, dry acidity and a touch of almond bitterness.

Description at back of bottle :
The grape for this wine were selected from low yielding vineyards in Marlborough. Using modern viticultural and wine making techniques, this wine has a wide range of aromas and flavours from tropical fruit and stonefruit through to herbaceousness. Appealing now, the wine will develop more intensity over time.
