Lawson's Dry Hills 2020 Sauvignon Blanc is a vegan-friendly SB produced from sustainably-grown grapes sourced from a certified sustainable vineyard in the Marlborough wine region. Crafted 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. Look for herbal-grassy notes, tropical fruit, lime zest and fine herb flavours on this wine balanced with mouth-watering acidity. A juicy SB, briefly barrel-fermented and aged giving the wine a nice mouthfeel, finesse and a harmonious finish. Drink or hold.

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

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

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.
