Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"This wine is an almost equal blend of grapes from the Lawson’s Home Block and the nearby Woodward vineyard. The vines range from between fourteen and thirty years in age and are grown in soils with a higher clay content. These factors combined with careful viticulture produce lovely aromatics and a great concentration of flavour. 

This wine has a wonderfully varietal nose with a complex array of aromas. The classic lychee and rose petal notes are joined by lemon, mango, cardamom and ginger producing an intoxicating mixture. The palate has lovely fruit concentration and length yet has a lightness and poise which seem to be a characteristic of this extraordinary vintage. We have deliberately left a touch of sweetness to balance the wines acidity and weight."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"One of the country's most impressive Gewürztraminers. Grown in the Home Block and nearby Woodward Vineyard, at the foot of the Wither Hills, it is typically harvested at about 24 brix and mostly fermented in stainless steel tanks; a key part of the blend (about 15 per cent) is given 'the full treatment', with a high-solids, indigenous yeast ferment in seasoned French oak barriques, malolactic fermentation and lees-stirring. The youthful 2015 vintage is light lemon/green, ripely scented and mouthfilling, with gentle sweetness (8 grams/litre of residual sugar), strong pear, lychee and spice flavours, and a tightly structured finish. Open mid-2017+."
Number 3 & 4 1/2 Stars Cuisine Gewurztraminer Tasting, March 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Fruit from some of the oldest gewurztraminer 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."
