Description

The original company vineyard was planted in 1982 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, who launched the Lawson’s Dry Hills label ten years later, in 1992. Today, the company’s wines include multiple varieties, including their famous Gewürztraminer, all made from fruit grown in the Wairau, Waihopai, Omaka, and Awatere Valleys. These different regions and carefully selected vineyard sites provide varying characteristics derived from the various soils and microclimates, giving many options for blending to that much-anticipated Lawson’s style.

Lawson’s Dry Hills Wines are leaders in sustainability in their industry. They are the only New Zealand wine producer with Environmental Management and carbon-zero accreditations. They also won a commendation at the Sustainable Business Awards in the Climate Action Leader category and the Excellence in Sustainability Award at the New Zealand International Business Awards

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vineyard & Vinification Note:

 

Winemaker: Marcus Wright/ Rebecca Wiffen Alc:13.5%

 Vineyards and viticulture: This wine is from our winery block, planted in 1981. The vines grow in quite heavy, clay-based soils, which produce flavoursome grapes. The resulting wines have an array of flavours and a plush, supple palate.

Winemaking: Harvested in the cool of the early morning, 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 overall complexity. After several months resting on the yeast lees post ferment, we blended a little of the pressings into the free-run juice to provide some extra palate volume and complexity.

CellaringFive years or more.
