Kim Crawford

Marlborough, marlborough New Zealand

Kim Crawford Wines was established in late 1996, when Kim and Erica Crawford launched two wines made from fruit grown in Marlborough. The Crawfords sold the company to Constellation in 2005 and subsequently handed the reins over to the Constellation winemaking team, led by chief winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst, who had trained under Kim.

Despite Kim Crawford no longer being involved with these wines, the current winemakers and viticulturalists continue the classic Crawford philosophy and style. Control over grape supply has always been essential and Constellation continues to maintain good contracts with growers in the region, ensuring consistency of quality and style.

Kim Crawford is renowned for their Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, which is blended from over 200 separate batches from their own extensive vineyard holdings and from growers throughout the Wairau, Awatere, Blind River, Waihopai and Omaka Valleys. The age range of the vines (from 5 - 20 years) brings a mix of youthful exuberance, fruit and depth of flavour to the wine.

In selected vintages, Kim Crawford releases their Small Parcels ‘Spitfire’ Sauvignon Blanc, named in commemoration of the World War II fighter aircraft base in Blenheim, the original site upon which vines for the first vintage of ‘Spitfire’ Sauvignon Blanc were planted. Often from a single vineyard, the parcels selected have the most intense flavour of the vintage. The ‘South Island’ Pinot Noir is a blend of Marlborough and Central Otago sites, giving Anthony a great range of flavour profiles to work with to deliver Kim Crawford’s signature red berry and spice notes.
