Tasting Notes
This wine has lifted red berry fruits on the nose, mixed with dark cherry notes, savoury undertones and spicy oak. The palate displays ripe blackberry and cherry, filled out with subtle sweet spice from the oak ageing.
History
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.
Regional Information
The grapes for this wine are sourced from some excellent cool-climate vineyards in the Marlborough (64%) and Central Otago (36%) regions of New Zealand's South Island. A wide variety of clones and rootstock were used, along with a mixture of soils and microclimates to ensure a balance of flavour profiles and exceptional quality.

Vinification Details
Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and underwent a five day pre-fermentation maceration on the skins. The wine was fermented in open top fermenters at controlled temperatures with regular punch downs and pump overs to extract maximum colour and flavour. After fermentation, the wine was pressed off the skins and part of the blend went into French oak barrels for nine months, 10% of which were new. The final blend was assembled following careful tasting and analysis.
