Winery notes (2016 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 Michael Cooper (2016 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 2016 vintage is benchmark stuff. Retasted in April 2018, it is weighty and well-rounded, with an array of peach, pear, ginger, lychee and spice flavours, a slightly oily richness, good complexity and an off-dry (7.5 grams/litre of residual sugar), very harmonious finish. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2019+."
