Lemon balm, passionfruit, delicate floral notes provide intense aromatic's - classically Marlborough! The palate is powerful and focused with great concentration and a crisp fresh finish. The barrel fermentation component adds flavour complexity and enhances the wines natural minerality.

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.

Cuisine Magazine 169 - March 2015 - FIVE STARS

March 2015

This wineries Gewürztraminer consistently impresses. The conditions were there in 2013 to do so again and the team at Lawson's Dry Hills has delivered. Lychee and rosewater notes unfold gently on the palate - this medium-style wine has the poise, depth and structural ease that come with old vine fruit.
