Lawson's Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Tasting Notes

This wine has typically lifted Marlborough aromatics and these match with a palate that has finesse and texture. Lovely ripe passionfruit aromas are complemented with green grass and lime notes. The palate is light and fresh with delicious citrus notes and a chalky, crisp finish.

Vineyards and viticulture

2019 was a stunning year in the vineyard with a warm, dry summer and slightly lower crops that produced juicy and ripe Sauvignon Blanc with lifted aromatics and intense flavour. Three quarters from the Wairau and the remainder from our Awatere vineyard with each block contributing its own characters. Combined, these provide a wonderful array of flavours.

Winemaking

Each block was picked when we considered them to have maximum passionfruit characters and while the acidity was still bright and crisp. The grapes were gently pressed before the majority of juice was cool-fermented in stainless tank with selected yeast. 7% was fermented in old French barriques with wild yeast, to add further complexity.

Cellaring

Delicious now but will continue to develop in bottle, highlighting the minerality of this wine. Enjoy over the next couple of years.
