Lawson’s Dry Hills ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Jan-2013
Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on rim. This has a very powerful and tightly concentrated nose of pungent passionfruit along with lifted, ripe tropical fruit aromas and fine, cutting, minerally notes. Dry to taste, densely packed flavours of passionfruit, fresh herbs and limes form a concentrated core with a very refined palate line. Very smooth and near seamless in texture, the acidity harmoniously underlines the flavours and adds to the drive. This has an elegance of proportion to the concentration which carries though to a finish that is very long and lingering, showing lush passionfruit and minerally elements. This is a concentrated and fine textured Sauvignon Blanc packed with passionfruit flavours. Serve with seafood, poultry, and goats cheese over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the ‘Fryer Road' vineyard in the lower Wairau, stainless-steel fermented to 13.0% alc. and 2.8 g/L rs, the wine aged on lees 2 months. 19.0-/20 Jan 2013 RRP $27.00
