Lawson’s Dry Hills Reserve Sauvignon Blanc

Pris: 119.95 DKK

Torrt vitt vin, 75 cl, 13 % alk, Marlborough, Nya Zeeland

100 % Sauvignon Blanc

Lawson’s grundades 1980 men vann snabbt mycket respekt och många priser för sina viner. De var tidigt nyskapande men har aldrig tummat på kvaliteten. De utsågs bl.a. 2013 av Decanter till världens bäste producent av Sauvignon Blanc-viner. Och detta är ett av deras toppviner!

Ett mycket aromatiskt och elegant vin, med smak av passionsfrukt, vita blommor, lime som samsas med den lite kryddiga fatkaraktären. Ett vin att njuta av, passar perfekt till lite smakrikare fiskrätter som ugnsbakad lax med rostad paprika, till en citronfylld kyckling med provencalska örter.

Certifierad som ekologisk av Sustainable New Zealand

Restsötma: 1,7 gr/L

Michael Cooper Buyers Guide 2014 – FIVE STARS

Weighty and vibrantly fruity, with deliciously punchy passionfruit/lime flavours and a tight, finely poised sustained finish. Best drinking in 2014.

Marlborough Express

No point beating around the bush – this wine has a fantastic aroma; lemon grass, citrus – a lovely ripe fruity/herbal blend with a soft floral note sitting in the background. The weighty, ripe palate delivers plenty of passionfruit and citrus flavours with clean, crisp herbaceous definition. Avery generous full-bodied wine that will suit a special occasion and deserves its ’Reserve’ title. Both the Sauvignon Blancs reviewed here are proof that, when well-made, a good savy will age with increasing generosity in terms of taste and texture. They will partner baked salmon or light white meats.

International Wine Challenge 2014 (U.K.) – SILVER MEDAL

Aromatic with taut citrus notes and a vibrant backbone of acidity and a fresh finish.

Cuisine Magazine – FOUR & HALF STARS

 

Raymond Chan Wine Reviews – FIVE STARS

Lifted aromatics emerge from a deeply packed core of ripe of tropical and passionfruit, lime, florals and sweet herbs. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied. A packed and densely concentrated heart of sweet and slippery passionfruit is the main feature.

Otago Daily Times – FOUR STARS

Pungent with a hint of minerality and sweet fruits – kiwi, citrus. Held in restraint at present by the tight acidity and dry finish. This is unusually restrained for a Sauvignon Blanc, but I suspect a few more months will allow it to reveal its potential.
The New Zealand International Wine Show – SILVER MEDAL.
