Lawson’s Dry Hills ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Dec-2013
Bright, even, pale straw yellow with green hues. This has a full, open nose with an array of lifted aromatics that emerge from a deeply packed core of ripe passionfruit and tropical fruits. Limes, florals and sweet herbs grow in volume and add detail to the pungency. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, a packed and densely concentrated heart of sweet and slippery, refined passionfruit flavours is the feature. Waves of fresh, dark herbs, capsicums and citrus fruits fill the mouth with succulence and liveliness. The acidity is poised and carries the flavours with energy and tension to a very long and lingering finish. This is a fine, concentrated and sweet passionfruity Sauvignon Blanc with a lively and bright mouthfeel that blossoms in flavour. Match with herb-infused poultry or with goats cheeses over the next 2+ years. 83% of the fruit from the ‘Langlois’ vineyard, Renwick and the remainder from the ‘Barnsley’ site in the Waihopi, cool-fermented in stainless-steel to 14.0% alc. and 3.0 g/L RS, the wine aged 2 months on lees. 18.5+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $27.00
