Wine maker notes
Always delivering outstanding wines, the Growing Horizon Vineyard—located in the Central Wairau sub-region of Marlborough—was selected as the first single-vineyard vintage Spitfire since 2005. The vineyard is planted on alluvial loam soil allowing the vines to produce a big lush canopy, which actively grows during the season. These very rich soils result in super-healthy vines, which produce grapes with maximum flavor. The vines are relatively young and produce wines with great intensity. A complex wine with ripe tropical fruit flavors balanced by herbaceousness, goosberry and crisp acidity. A superb reflection of Marlborough.

Food pairing
A wine to suit full-flavored seafood dishes such as pan-seared scallops or crayfish.

In 1996, Kim Crawford and his wife Erica fell in love with the idea of starting a winery. The only problem was they had little money. So Kim and Erica ran the company from a spare room of their home in Central Auckland, New Zealand. In their first vintage, they produced 4,000 cases without owning a single grapevine or tank. With head-spinning speed, their powerful, aromatic wines gained a devoted, even fanatical, following. Just two years after startup, they began exporting their wines to the United States. Within four short years of their first release, the Crawfords had rented a state-of-the-art winery in Marlborough and began looking at vineyards they could buy. In 2003, Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List for the first time. And then again in 2005, 2006 and in 2008—the same year Wine Spectator also awarded our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 91 points to mark seven years in a row of 90 plus points for this wine. Today we’re the #1 luxury New Zealand wine in the United States.*
