Lawson’s Dry Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2014

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2014
Bright, very pale straw colour with slight green hues. The nose is fresh and tightly bound with penetrating aromas of lively, pungent passionfruit, lifted herbs and bright floral detail. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, tight and piercing fruit flavours of gooseberries florals and herbs form a very fine-textured, vibrant and energetic line. The mouthfeel has fresh acid cut, and reveals some passionfruit and minerally detail. This flows with good tension, carrying through to a slender, mouthwatering finish with lingering gooseberry and herbal notes. This is an elegant, tightly bound lively Sauvignon Blanc with floral and gooseberry flavours, Serve with salads and vegetables, and with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. Fruit from 7 vineyards, 70% Southern Valleys, 10% Rapaura, 8.3% Awatere and the remainder ‘Chaytors Road’ and lower Wairau, cool-fermented in stainless-steel with 8% in seasoned French oak barriques to 13.0% alc. and 1.8 g/L RS, the wine aged several months on lees. 18.0/20 Dec 2014 RRP $19.95
