Lawson’s Dry Hills Gewürztraminer, 2018

£17.95

Category: New Zealand, MARLBOROUGH, Lawson's Dry Hills, 2018

This is gewürztraminer personified with wonderfully lifted florals and pronounced notes of lychee and citrus. The wine has a soft and rounded texture with a weighty, generous mid-palate. Rose petal flavours give way to ripe tropical fruits while the finish has a pithy lemon character. Intensely concentrated, complex and delicious.

Premium Marlborough wines of great character, quality and varietal expression. Lawson’s Dry Hills produce a benchmark range of Marlborough wines. Founded in 1992 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, their first vintage was just 15 tonnes and was managed by Ross from the old tin shed on the property, which is still standing and forms part of the winery cellar door. All the grapes for their range are sourced from Marlborough’s Wairau, Waihopai, Omaka, Awatere and Brancott valleys. Their Gewürztraminer has gone on to be recognised as one of the country’s finest and has firmly established Lawson’s Dry Hills on the national and international stage.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Winemaker: Marcus Wright/ Rebecca Wiffen

Alc :14%

Vineyards and viticulture: 95% from our Home Block around the winery, planted in 1981, with the balance from the Woodward block located a few hundred metres down the road

Winemaking: Picking when the flavour is optimal is key for this variety and we made several picks across the vineyard to ensure each parcel was perfect. The grapes were gently pressed with the free run juice straight to tank and the pressings to barrel. Post fermentation these were carefully blended to give a wine with rich aromatics, flavour and texture yet with harmony and balance

Cellaring: Five years or more.

Try with exotic, well-flavoured and spicy foods such as Moroccan dishes with dried fruits or Asian-inspired foods. It works well with these flavours: fresh ginger, clove, cinnamon, allspice, turmeric, madras curry, Sichuan pepper, soy sauce, sesame, almond, rose water.
