The winter air isn’t the only thing that’s crisp- Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc (2013) is fresh and crisp and pairs perfectly with pork. The colourful vegetable medley, whipped mash potatoes and sundried tomato rice were all flavourful, but with something on the more dry side, like a pork chop, I prefer to pair it with a somewhat sweeter wine. The Kim Crawford was a perfect compliment to this dish.
This white has notes of fresh cut grass, lime, and passion fruit and has a ‘bitter’, medium finish. I had originally paired this dinner with a riesling, which was also tasty and sweet with the dry nature of the pork chop, however once I switched to the Sauv., I preferred the pairing and could taste the fresh cut grass quite intensely.
