Winemaker's Notes:

Sourced from a selection of vineyard sites throughout Marlborough's Wairau Valley, this Sauvignon Blanc reflects the excellent 2001 vintage. A small portion of the blend was fermented in French barriques and underwent malolactic fermentation. Ripe gooseberry and passionfruit aromas are balanced with crisp herbal flavours, good palate weight and a long fresh finish.
My Notes:

About Lawson's Dry Hills:

Lawson's Dry Hills is a medium-sized Marlborough wine company committed to the production of premium Marlborough wines. The company was founded in 1992 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, when they decided to make wine themselves rather than on-selling the grapes that they had been growing since 1980. The wines have been received well, with many show successes. Recent vintages of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gew├╝rztraminer, and now Pinot Noir show excellent depth of fruit and complexity with a variety of winemaking techniques applied.
