Awards & Reviews

Cuisne Magazine issus 169 - March 2015 - FOUR STARS - BEST BUY

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
