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.

Grape

100% Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Vineyards and viticulture: This wine comes from a handful of our vineyards mostly situated in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys and is complemented by a small amount of fruit from the Awatere. An early budburst and inclement weather at flowering lead to low yields, however the upside of this is that the 2021 season produced ripe and intensely flavoured grapes.

Winemaking: Low crops and fine weather during the harvest period allowed us to pick these grapes in perfect condition. Each block was picked when we considered them to have reached maximum passionfruit

characters and while the acidity was still bright and crisp. The grapes were gently pressed before being fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected cultured yeast, while 5% was fermented with wild yeast in old French barriques. 13%

Cellaring: Incredible right now – but it will mellow after a little time in bottle. You can enjoy this wine for two to three years, at least.
