Marlborough 2008 Sauvignon Blanc

A mini-review here of a 2008 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc made by Kim Crawford, who's based in Auckland, New Zealand.  It ran in the $14 range at Sam's.

This had more flavors and wasn't as sweet, but had a little more bite, than its $8 predecessor that I drank last week.  I thought I detected a little chalkiness, and reading up on SBs, I noticed that chalkiness is often a quality, though more often in French ones.

Not a bad SB for the price.  I'm not a big fan of chicken on the grill (especially my brother-in-law's), but this would nicely accompany grilled chicken (properly cooked).
