Natalie's Score: 90/100

Produced by Ross and Barbara Lawson who have been grape growers since 1980, and winemakers since 1992. This winery is part of the Family of Twelve, a group of a dozen artisanal wineries, six of which are from the North Island and six from the South Island, that was founded in 2005. This vibrant white wine was barrel-fermented in the Marlborough wine region. Look for herbal-grassy notes, mouth-watering acidity and a lime citrus lift on this juicy SB briefly barrel-aged for added creaminess and finesse.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: grilled Dijon chicken stuffed with ham and cheese, salads topped with grilled shrimp, fish tacos.

Marlborough, South Island, Lawson's Dry Hills 2018 Sauvignon Blanc is produced from a certified sustainable vineyard. Mouth-watering and so silky on the palate with herbal-grassy notes, lime zest and grapefruit flavours on the palate. Chill and pair with an herbed quiche or brunch fare. - Community Wine Reviews

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
