Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc 2008

In a word - wow. This New Zealand malborough reminds me of Oyster Bay, but with perfectly balanced acid, aroma and flavour. It also reminds me of a couple of Okanagan favorites: Greata Ranch Ehrenfelser, and Wild Goose God's Head Reisling. This one has the same fruity bouquet but is more restrained. Some lime, grapefruit and violet I think. I wish it was summer and I had a bottle of this on ice in the cooler on the patio.

Kris thinks this may be the best white she's ever tasted. That's quite possible.

92 points. $19.99 at Superstore.
