"Pink grapefruit, fresh lime, floral, juicy gooseberry, capsicum (bell pepper) and a subtle smoky note combine to produce a complex, intriguing nose. The palate is zesty, concentrated, dry and chalky with nettle, green capsicum and citrus flavours. it is fleshy and textural and leaves a delicious lasting impression."
The original company vineyard was planted in 1982 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, who launched the Lawson’s Dry Hills label some ten years later, in 1992. Today, the company’s wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and our 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 different soils and microclimates, giving many options when it comes to blending to that much-anticipated Lawson’s style.
