Lawson's Dry Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2016 has plenty of classic Marlborough Sauvignon flavours, but it's the juicy, succulent texture that sets it apart. There is a flavour punch in the mid palate that makes it incredibly delicious and excitingly moreish. 
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This Sauvignon Blanc embraces the wonderful growing season of the 2016 vintage. Lifted aromatics of citrus and tropical fruits with a grassy, herbaceous edge lead to flavours of passionfruit, lemon and lime. The small of old barrel (6%) and the 7% wild ferment give this wine added complexity,weight and texture."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"It is fabulously aromatic on the nose showing passionfruit, nectarine, feijoa and lemongrass characters. The palate is concentrated and flavoursome, and offers excellent fruit purity and vibrancy, brilliantly structured by juicy acidity. The wine is up front and delectable. At its best: now to 2019."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, April 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"​Bright pale straw colour, near colourless on the rim. The nose is very rich in fruit with firmly concentrated aromas of pungent passionfruit along with savoury herbs, notes of cut grass, green stonefruits and subtle hints of smoke. The aromatics are densely pack and interwoven, opening in volume with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has rich, luscious and lively mouthfilling flavours of passionfruit, gooseberries, green stonefruits, and slightly savoury, smoky herb nuances. This has weight and presence, and the dense core flows smoothly along a soft-textured line with balanced acidity and energy. The wine carries to a long finish of passionfruit and green stonefruits. This is a rich and well-concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with layers of passionfruit, green stonefruits and savoury herb elements. Match with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2 years. 100% Marlborough fruit, two-thirds from the company’s Waihopai Valley and Chaytors Road vineyards, and the balance from the southern side of the Wairau Valley, 7% indigenous yeast fermented, and 6% in seasoned French oak barriques, the remainder conventionally in stainless-steel to 13.0% alc. and 2.8 g/L RS."
