This Sauvignon Blanc has tropical fruit aromas of pineapple and mango, along with lifted citrus notes and crushed herbs that dominate the nose. The wine has juicy acidity, with plenty of palate weight and length. Ripe, tropical fruit flavours of passion fruit, melon and grapefruit linger on the persistent finish.

Kim Crawford has access to probably the widest selection of Marlborough vineyards, for blending their distinctive, award-winning Sauvignon Blanc. 120 wines are included in the blend, from all over Marlborough. In 2018 the makeup was approximately 70% Wairau/Waihopai, 30% Awatere/Blind River. Their new Merrifield's vineyards in Blind River were a significant contributor to the blend, confirming Blind River’s growing reputation as “Rapaura in the south”.

Spring was wet and mild with no frost in any of the vineyards. Summer temperatures stepped up with December being the second warmest on record, while January saw the highest temperatures since records began. By February it was looking like an early harvest, with superb flowering conditions and a sizeable crop necessitating thinning in almost all vineyards. However, two ex-tropical cyclones brought considerable rainfall in February. Harvest started mid-March with grapes at a good level of physiological ripeness but needing careful hand-sorting to eliminate botrytis. Despite the rain, fruit was able to hang on the vine to achieve very good ripeness levels.
