Lawson’s Dry Hills Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2012

16-Jan-2013

Though Ross and Barbara Lawson had been growing grapes on Alabama Road in the lower Wairau since 1980, it was in 1992 that they established their own label Lawson's Dry Hills. The company has since gone on to become one of Marlborough's stalwarts, sourcing fruit from the Waihopi and Omaka valleys with a vineyard acquisition in August 2012 now providing Awatere grapes. The Lawson's Dry Hills range is a burgeoning one, with a flagship ‘The Pioneer' range, named in tribute to Ross who passed away in 2009, made only in exceptional years. To provide clearer differentiation, Lawson's Dry Hills have introduced a ‘Reserve' range to showcase particularly noteworthy and individual lots of wine. The Sauvignon Blanc is the first of the range, with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to follow. Here is my review of the ‘Reserve' Sauvignon Blanc 2012. www.lawsonsdryhills.co.nz
