Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc: Weekend Wine Review

Kim Crawford wines never disappoint. Never. The Sauvignon Blanc is one of our favorites and very reasonably priced at $13 a bottle in our area (North Florida).

This New Zealand wine from the Marlborough region (which is located in the northeast of the South island) has a wonderful climate for growing grapes. I have been reading about this as the New Zealand wines have been high on our favorite list for a long time. Why is that? Why are the wines from this region always reliable and easy on the palate? It’s the ideal temperature fluctuations and so…perfection! The grapes like this and make for a bright and clean taste. Lovely on these brutal hot evenings when humidity seems to have texture. This Sauvignon Blanc is going to be a staple in our wine rack this summer.

Enjoy with seafood, mild chicken entree or a light pasta meal.

Highly recommended!

So Simon loves a Sauvignon Blanc - and I normally ask for soda water (do you call it soda water over there) with mine ... beautifully cooling on a summer evening!

This is definitely an enjoyable wine. Good recommendation for a hot day in North Florida.


P.S. You asked if you could call me... I can't remember if I responded if not, Absolutely you can call me.

That's it Tina. I'm just going to rely on you for my wine choices because I know I love this one as do you.

P.S. Did I ever wish you a Happy Birthday this year. Just in case, I'm singing it right now!!! Can you hear me???

Deb, c'mon over, there may be a glass left...haha

Mrs. L, we do call it soda water but I have not done that in a long time. Like a spritzer, yum!

Thank you, Velva, I want canning advice :-)

I can hear you, Louise! Thank you so much!

Grilling Chicken and Asparagus

This new Weber grill has taken the heat out of the kitchen and outside on the porch. Perfect when the temperatures are reaching the upper 90...
