怡人果香之魂

 

002-sauvignon-blanc

Sauvignon Blanc,一種應該強調清爽、果香的葡萄品種,不知怎的,給好些紐西蘭釀酒商弄出個「世界聞名」的青椒香氣來;令今日的大眾,往往把紐西蘭出產,或甚是Sauvignon Blanc這種葡萄等同於「青椒味」,真夠百辭莫辯!

─Kim Crawford ─

一間只有二十年歷史的紐西蘭酒廠:1996 年由紐西蘭的奧克蘭中的一個小家庭創立。1998年開始把酒輸出到美國,並於4年內成為Marlborough一等一的釀酒廠;其後更買田又買地的當起葡萄農來,顯示了要釀出好酒來的決心。以僅僅的6年時間,即2003年,Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 取得了Wine Spectator Top 100 List (100支好酒榜) 之一,並於2005年再度入榜。Wine Spectator更於2008年授予 90+ 的分數,而且保持著這個分數達7年之久。

 

風味是Kim Crawford釀酒哲學中的核心價值:確保葡萄能成為釀出優良葡萄酒的關鍵,正正是他們最著意的。他們希望從各種各樣的葡萄生產出多樣化、美味,而又充滿活動的葡萄酒,並以水果的香氣來帶出葡萄的自然風味。努力不懈地追求卓越品質就是他們釀酒的熱誠和推動力。

─果香中的潔淨之魂-

were one of the first wineries in New Zealand to launch our wines in screw caps because they keep wine fresher than corks. Now it is an industry norm.

At a time when the world was flooded with oak aged chardonnays, we decided the world needed a clean, top quality, fruit driven chardonnay devoid of heavy oak, so we started making one.

We only offer our Small Parcels in stellar vintages.

世界充斥著橡木歲霞的時候,我們決定世界需要清潔,頂級品質,果香型霞多麗沒有沉重的橡木,所以我們開始製作之一。我們只提供我們在恒星葡萄酒的小包裹。

These grapes were selected from vineyards in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley and the neighbouring Awatere Valley. Fast draining, alluvial loams over gravelly subsoils in these valleys provide ideal growing conditions for our Sauvignon Blanc. Individual blocks were targeted for their strengths and overall contribution to the blend. The vines ranged in age, up to 14 years, bringing a mix of youthful vigour and depth of flavour.

這些葡萄抽取在瑪律伯勒的懷勞谷和鄰近的阿瓦蒂谷葡萄園。排水速度快,在礫石地基在這些山谷的沖積沃土提供理想的生長條件的我們相思。個別的塊被針對他們的優勢和對共混物的整體貢獻。葡萄藤至 14 年,最多不在年齡,帶來了青春的活力組合和深度的味道。

FOOD PAIRINGS

Great to drink with anyone at any time. Pairs brilliantly with fresh oysters, asparagus, lobster, or summer salads.
