This wine has a very powerful berry fruit nose, with pure strawberry and sweet fruit. It is an intense wine, sweaty with a great palate.

"This second-tier label from experienced Marlborough winery Lawson's Dry Hills continues to offer fantastic value, vintage after vintage. This latest rendition delivers a zingy blast of fresh green herbs and lime notes, supported by punchy acidity. Serve it with goat's cheese and crackers at a summer drinks gathering".

March 2015

This wine's aromatics are head-spinning - waves of vibrant citrus and citrus blossom. That generosity continues in the mouth where there is breadth, length, purity and a lovely caressing texture. An excellent dry style from the accomplished team at Lawson's Dry Hills

Air New Zealand Inflight Magazine - Kia Ora

Flagship wine from one of Marlborough's leading Gewürztraminer producers. Rich, creamy and concentrated offering a lot more complexity, weight and flavour than most. Sophisticated wine with a wide array of flavours including lychee, Turkish delight, liquorice and mixed spice/clove. Medium/dry.

Bob Campbell, MW Reviews - Gold Ribbon/Medal

The Dish - FOUR STARS

April-May issue 2014

Judges comments - This is a sweeter style of Gewürztraminer that's especially golden and pretty in the glass."I love the caramelized, honeyed notes; grilled peach, lychee and ginger on the nose," said Yvonne. "And it's super succulent on the palate". Andrew described it as " a decadent style, which has great freshness and balance".

Michael Cooper Buyers Guide 2014 - FIVE STARS

Weighty and vibrantly fruity, with deliciously punchy passionfruit/lime flavours and a tight, finely poised sustained finish. Best drinking in 2014.
