New Zealand Whites
Lawson's Dry Hills Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2001 (Screwcap) $9.99USD
Fresh and vibrant for a three year old with prominent herbaceous, citrus and pineapple notes. Mouth filling, almost fat, with a softness across the palate backed up by bright acidity. Excellent retronasal and a long finish. The wine developed an attractive diesel flavor. Excellent value. 2, 2, 4.0, 10.2 = 18.2, 13% alcohol. Tasted November 21, 2004.
