Jabber The Winemaker The Blend Sauvignon Blanc 2023

Valle de Casablanca, Region de Aconcagua, ChileKim Crawford, the brand, is famous worldwide for New Zealand sauvignon blanc, but Kim Crawford, the winemaker who made that brand famous, is no longer associated with the winery or the brand. When the winery was sold to Constellation Brands, they bought his name. Jabber is what his friends call him, and his new label in Chile might be his most important work. Working with granitic soils, red clays, black chalk, slopes, and three microclimates within Casablanca, Crawford makes deliciously bright, citrus powered sauvignon with a tight mineral, reductive note, and less biting acidity. It is a Chilean version of Sancerre with a riff of ripeness running through the wine. Ready to drink with mussels, clams, or freshly shucked oysters.
