The winery and the Woodward vineyards provides us with wonderfully expressive Gewürztraminer, that has lifted lychee and rose petal aromas, complemented by subtle spicy notes. The palate is wonderfully rich with great intensity, well balanced and with a dry finish.

Reverse Wine Snob (U.S.A.) - Review

The 2014 Lawson's Dry Hills Gewürztraminer begins with an enticing aroma of wine peach, lots of floral notes and nice touches of ginger. The wine is quite soft on the palate and slightly sweet with lovely touches of ginger from the nose carrying over. You'll also find a little orange peel, lots of melon, a bit of banana and a touch of honey. It ends with lingering ginger notes on the medium-length finish. Not only is it intriguing but it's also quite good!
