Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Produced from the Lawson's Dry Hills home block vineyard around the winery, where Ross and Barbara established their first vineyard in the early 80s. Since then the Gewürztraminer from this vineyard has legendary in New Zealand wine circles, made in a medium style this wine has a rich, round mouth feel with great depth and concentration whilst displaying wonderful aromatics.

The palate is rich and generous with a round luscious texture, lovely complex flavours with classic Gewürztraminer characters including lychee and rose water overlaid with rich musk and marmalade. This is a wine that really coats the mouth, leaving a lasting impression."
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Rich aromas of apricot, marmalade, Turkish Delight, dried flower and cake spice lead to a sumptuous palate that is plush and complex. The wine is concentrated and multi-layered, and offers waves of delicious flavours and silky texture, finishing persistent and seamless. At its best: now to 2023."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"The delicious 2015 vintage is a weighty (14.5 per cent alcohol), fleshy, Alsace-style wine, estate-grown in the Home Block and barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts. Bright, light lemon/green, it is fresh and complex, with concentrated, ripe, peachy, spicy flavours, a gentle splash of sweetness (18.6 grams/litre of residual sugar), and lovely depth and harmony. Drink now or cellar."
