Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Show 2019

A stunner Savvy from the Lawsons Dry Hills Team.

The stats all stack up:

Vintage.....tick!
Producer...tick!
Price...tick!

2019 was a very special vintage where all our Sauvignon Blanc vineyards produced excellent fruit with lovely depth of flavour. All blocks were VSP pruned and crop levels were deliberately managed to produce fruit with intensely concentrated flavours.

Deliberately made in the more herbaceous style with cut grass, capsicum and freshly squeezed lime producing the classic Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc nose. The palate has strong citrus notes with crisp acidity and a nice, fleshy mid-palate.

The Mt Vernon label was originally a wine used for overseas markets but it keeps taking out all the medals so Lawsons decided to keep it for us Kiwis instead.

The winery sums it up beautifully:  "This is Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc at its best – zesty, crisp, simultaneously herbaceous and tropical, beautifully aromatic. – DELICIOUS!”
