Lawson's Dry Hills
Winemaker: Marcus Wright/ Rebecca Wiffen
Alcohol: 14.0% pH: 3.6 RS: 8.3g/L
TA: 4g/L Brix: 22.7 - 24.8
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 rich with great intensity, is well balanced and has a dry finish.
Vegan friendly - Especially good with mild fish curries, smoked duck, chicken tagines and dishes flavoured with ginger.

Awards & Reviews
Michael Cooper's Buyer's Guide - Five stars
Cuisine March 2017 - issue 181 - FOUR AND A HALF STARS
Four and a half stars - Fruit from some of the oldest Gewürztraminer vines in the country contributes to this perennially fine version. Joyously floral and fragrant, it has attractive purity and zesty lift in the mouth. "A balanced wine oozing personality and charm" noted Cameron Douglas.
International Winme Challenge 2017 Tranche 1) - Silver medal
Bob Campbell MW - Four and half stars
Lawson's Dry Hills have produced one of Marlborough's top examples of Gewürztraminer for many years. It's an off-dry style, with masses of Turkish Delight, rose petal, lychee, pot-pourri varietal flavours and a suggestion of clove spice on the finish. Slightly prominent alcohol (3/11/2016)
