Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2016

13-Apr-2017
Founded in 1992 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, their ‘Lawson’s Dry Hill’ quickly became synonymous with carefully crafted Marlborough wines of clarity and regional expression. After the passing of Ross Lawson in 2009, long time shareholders Tim and Pauline Evill took up the family shares eventually in 2014. The company has shareholders Sion Barnsley as general manager and director, his family involved with Lawson’s since its inception, and Marcus Wright, senior winemaker since 2001. The Lawson’s team is a strong one with Marc Ludemann in the viticultural role since 2006, Bec Wiffen as assistant winemaker since 2004 and Belinda Jackson as the group marketing manager. Barbara Lawson retains the continuity as the brand ambassador. With the changes has come new energy and the range of wines from the company’s multiple fruit sources throughout the region have grown in sophistication. Here, I review the new 2016 Sauvignon Blanc which shows the move away from straightforward vinification and style. www.lawsonsdryhills.co.nz
