Lawson’s Dry Hills Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

New Zealand, Marlborough

This wine displays an amazing array of lifted tropical aromas – passion fruit, lime and papaya together with a background note of fresh chervil. The palate has minerality and lovely concentration, intensity and fruit weight.”

Origin

Marlborough, in the north east corner of the South Island, is New Zealand's premier, world renowned Sauvignon region. Strong contrast between hot sunny days and cool nights help extend the ripening period.

The grapes for this wine were sourced from the Barnsley Vineyard and Langlois Vineyard in the Waihopai and Wairau Valleys respectively; each site was selected for its distinctive, passion fruit flavours and spectacular aromatics and weight.

Grape Variety

100% Sauvignon Blanc.

After harvest the grapes were gently pressed with only the free run juice being used for this wine. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with two specially selected yeast strains, after which the wine was allowed to rest on the yeast lees for two months prior to filtration and bottling.

Alcohol Percentage

13%
