Lawsons Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Lawson's Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand   |    750ml   |    13%
Long regarded as one of Marlborough leading Sauvignon Blanc makers, the team at Lawson's Dry Hills have been in super recent form. This 2018 Lawson's Dry Hill Sauvignon Blanc offers up lifted aromatics of citrus and tropical fruits with a grassy, herbaceous edge lead to flavours of passionfruit, lemon and lime.

The palate is crisp and elegant with lovely length and concentration; a small amount of old barrel and wild ferment gives this wine a level of complexity, weight and texture not often associated with this Marlborough style.

When you combine more than 25 years’ experience with an inquisitive spirit, the result is a perfect balance of knowledge and innovation. These two traits can be found in every bottle of Lawson’s Dry Hills wine – wonderful, top quality fruit from our carefully nurtured vineyards transformed into imminently drinkable wines using modern winemaking techniques.

The original company vineyard was planted in 1980 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, who launched the Lawson’s Dry Hills label some twelve years later, in 1992. Today, the company’s wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and our famous Gewurztraminer, all made from fruit grown in Wairau, Waihopai, Omaka and Awatere Valleys. These different regions and carefully selected vineyard sites provide varying characteristics derived from the different soils and microclimates, giving many options when it comes to blending to that much-anticipated Lawson’s style.
