The classic varietal notes of lychee and rose petal are matched with stone fruit and fresh lemon aromas. This wine is just off dry with a rich, rounded, generous palate and lovely concentration.

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: This wine is predominantly from our Home block around the winery with the balance from Peter and Julie Woodward’s vineyard just a few hundred metres down the road. Both blocks have vines aged between 15 years old and 40 years old, growing on quite heavy, clay-based soils. These two elements combine to produce wines with a plush, supple palate. The 2019 harvest was a dream with moderate crops after a lovely warm spring and summer.

Winemaking: This wine was made from several picks. The earlier harvested grapes providing the backbone with slightly higher acidity, while those picked a little later, added richness and weight. The grapes were pressed very gently to avoid the harsh phenolics that can come from the skins. The free-run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures with selected, cultured yeast while the rest was fermented with wild yeast in old, French oak barrels. This is not for oak influence to come through in the wine, but for added complexity. After several months resting on the yeast lees post ferment, we blended a little of the pressings into the free run to provide some extra volume and complexity. Cellaring: Five years or more.
