Lawson's Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc Marlboroug 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromatically the wine is an intriguing blend of passionfruit,lemongrass and floral notes with freshly cut herbs and red capsicum(bellpaper) adding complexity.Crisp acidity gives the palate its typical Marlborough zing whilst highlighting the wines mineral qualities and adding to its great length.Flavour wise,passionfruit,pink grapefruit and lime dominate.With bottle age, the barrel ferment component will become more evident providing rich tropical characters to the palate.
