The 2018 Mount Vernon Sauvignon Blanc is a top class example of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that continues to attract plenty of fans. A super fresh, fruit-driven style, this offers plenty of lifted, juicy passion-fruit and freshly cut grass aromas that leap out of the glass. The palate has intense lemon and lime, green capsicum and tropical fruit notes, with the addition of a dash of Semillon adding further weight and texture to mouth-feel.

Another classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc from the team at Mount Vernon that offers sensational value drinking at this price.

The Mount Vernon label is part of the Lawson's Dry Hills brand, which has called the famous Marlborough region home since 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.

The dedicated bunch of people that make up our small team at Lawson’s Dry Hills are very ‘hands on’, living and breathing every part of the viticultural and winemaking process. We do a lot of talking and tasting before pouring our shared inspiration into every bottle.

The resulting wines offer an authentic expression of the place and the grape variety they are made from together with a certain special something that we believe can only come from passion.

Pale lemon in colour, this wine offers intense aromas with layers of citrus and grassy herbaceous notes and lovely tropical hints with passionfruit. The flavours on the palate match the aromas, combining the ripe, juicy fruit with fresh lemon and lime. A vibrant wine, concentrated on the mid-palate with good length and a dry, crisp finish.

Vineyards and viticulture: 43% of the grapes for this wine came from the Awatere Valley and the balance from the Wairau Valley. Grown on two and three cane VSP pruned vines, the grapes were picked on flavour to achieve a [perfect balance of ripe passionfruit with crisp, grassy notes.

Winemaking: Picked when we believe the flavours are at their optimum, the grapes are picked in the cool of the early morning, pre-dawn. They are gently pressed and the juice run into stainless steel tanks for fermentation at cool temperatures with specially selected yeast that maximise the juices aromatics. After fermentation the tanks are tasted and graded. This wine is a selection of our best tanks. The wine is bottled on site.

Cellaring: Deliciously punchy and intense now but will mellow slightly over the next two to three years.
