Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 31-Oct-2012
Bright, pale straw-yellow with slight green hues, pale on rim. This has a very concentrated, intensely packed and penetrating aromas of mineral-infused passionfruit and tropical fruits, revealing savoury pungent gooseberries. Dry and very refined with racy, slippery acidity, the flavours of passionfruit and gooseberries are tightly concentrated and intensely piercing. This has a very fine-textured mouthfeel, the fruit succulence allied to the mouthwatering acidity providing great linear drive. The flavours are attractively lifted by white florals, herb notes and esters on the long, lingering finish. This is a tightly concentrated and piercing Sauvignon Blanc with finesse and raciness that will become richer over the next 2-3 years. Serve with seafood, vegetables and creamy sauce dishes. Fruit from seven sites including one from the Awatere Valley, fermented in stainless-steel, with 7% in seasoned French barriques to 12.75% alc. and 2.8 g/L rs. 18.5-/20 Oct 2012 RRP $21.00
