Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Feb-2011
Very pale straw-yellow with youthful green hues to the colour, this has a fine, tightly bound, concentrated nose of passionfruit, English gooseberries, nuances of tropical fruit and pungency, with a steely line of minerals. Dry on palate, this has a lovely crisp and tight expression of tropical fruits and passionfruit that still manages to show a degree of succulence. The acidity is also fine, and provides an elegance to the mouthfeel and enhances the long, lingering finish. This is yet to show its best. It will open out over the next year and will be an excellent match with shellfish for another 3-4 years. Fruit sourced from seven sites in the Wairau and Waihopi valleys, cool-fermented in stainless-steel, with 7.5% in old French oak barriques to 13.5% al.c and 3.0 g/L rs. 18.0+/20 Feb 2011 RRP $20.00
