Lawson's Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is an intense mix of fruit characters. Passionfruit. lemon, gooseberry and melon, with lifted floral and blossom aromas complemented by notes of lime and red capsicum(bell pepper). The palate has a crisp acid backbone and wonderful length, citrus and passionfruit are dominate, with the barrique ferment component adding complexity and texture.
