We all know Lawson's Dry Hills produce fantastic Sauvignon Blanc and this is their "reserve" version, a wine truly deserving of that status. 
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Made from selected fruit from our Waihopai and Chaytors Road vineyards, a portion of this wine underwent wild fermentation in both older French oak barriques, puncheons (500 litres) and stainless steel tanks. Intense aromas of lemongrass, fresh green herbs and passionfriut dominate whilst tropical fruits and some mealy, savoury notes provide background interest. The palate is crisp, dry and mealy with a lovely chalky minerality, bags of citrus, tropical fruit and loads of fresh cut grass."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"A beautifully styled sauvignon with a 15% barrel-fermented portion, the engaging bouquet shows passionfruit, stone fruit, lime zest and subtle almond notes. The palate is concentrated and mouthfilling, and delivers excellent fruit purity as well as delicate savoury notes, wonderfully structured by perfectly pitched acidity. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 95/100 Gourmet Traveller, March 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​This reserve wine was made from a selection of grapes from Lawson’s Waihopai and Chaytors Road vineyards. The wine was fermented using indigenous yeasts in a mix of old barriques, puncheons and stainless steel tanks. Impressively weighty sauvignon blanc with concentration and complexity. Passionfruit, struck match/mineral and green capsicum flavours with a suggestion of cashew."
5 Stars & Top 10 Cuisine Sauvignon Blanc Tasting, December 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"​Smoky intrigue greets the nostrils. A line of flinty smokiness extends across the palate, providing focus and texture, harmonising with the white peach and greengage notes. This is a wine you would happily match with steamed Marlborough mussels."
