Today, the company’s wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and our famous Gewurztraminer, all made from fruit grown in Wairau, Waihopai, Omaka and Awatere Valleys. These different regions and carefully selected vineyard sites provide varying characteristics derived from the different soils and microclimates, giving many options when it comes to blending to that much-anticipated Lawson’s style.
The dedicated bunch of people that make up our small team at Lawson’s Dry Hills are very ‘hands on’, living and breathing every part of the viticultural and winemaking process. We do a lot of talking and tasting before pouring our shared inspiration into every bottle.
The resulting wines offer an authentic expression of the place and the grape variety they are made from together with a certain special something that we believe can only come from passion.
Viticulture Notes: The 2017 vintage produced good levels of perfectly ripe, top quality grapes - the ripening season was ideal for the flavour development of Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is produced from a number of vineyards that represent the best of the sub-regions within Marlborough, including the Southern Valleys, Rapaura, Brancott and Awatere Valleys. Each area provides different characters and textures that once blended, come together to add depth and complexity to this wine.
