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

Winemaker: Marcus Wright/Rebecca Wiffen

Vineyards and viticulture: From our coastal vineyard where the sea breezes moderate temperatures, this block is situated on the banks of the Wairau Diversion. The silts and river stones, combined with our 17 – 21- year-old Mendoza clone vines, are the perfect match. Chardonnay is an early variety for us and it arrived at the winery in pristine condition, perfectly ripe and full of flavour.

Winemaking: The grapes are hand-harvested and whole-bunch pressed and the juice settled briefly before being racked to French oak barrels (22% new). The juice was fermented ‘wild’ and encouraged to undergo full malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked from barrel and blended prior to being bottled here at the winery some ten months later.

Cellaring: This powerful yet elegant wine will continue to develop favourably for some time, becoming more mellow with age. Enjoy from now and over the next five years.

Tasting Note

This wine offers enticing aromas of lemon and peach with a light smokiness. Lovely concentration of fruit is enhanced by the French oak characters of vanilla and the extended lees contact adds toasted brioche and savoury flavours to the palate. An elegant, full-flavoured wine with a lovely, long finish.

Food Pairing

Seafood, terrines and pates, risotto, chicken, pork and char-grilled foods, roasted vegetables, dishes with creamy or buttery sauces, pumpkin and other sweet vegetables.
