Lawson's Dry Hills (Marlborough) 2019 Pioneer Gewurztraminer
94 Points Cameron Douglas MS
"Seductive and complex bouquet with fragrant spices, forest flowers, sweet scented white fleshed fruits, caramelised citrus, apple then honeysuckle. Weighty, fleshy, silky and delicious on the palate. Finesse and charm, mouthfeel a fresh. Well-made and ready from today and through 2025+." (October 2020)
From Lawsons Dry Hills, Marlborough icon. From thirty five year old vines with trunks as thick as thighs, this unique wine embraces everything that is so good about Gewürztraminer. Hugely aromatic with a pronounced and pungent perfume, the ensuing palate is rich, weighty and oily with intense, lingering flavours of exotic fruits and spices. Haunting, unwavering and highly desirable.
