Lawson's Dry Hills (Marlborough) 2020 Pioneer Gewurztraminer

94 Points Cameron Douglas MS (2019 vintage)
"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.

This Gewurztraminer is from the company’s original vineyard, planted in 1982, that surrounds the winery. These unirrigated vines are deeply rooted in clay soils which help to give the wine intensity, weight and body, resulting in a rich, mouth-coating texture.

This stunning example of Gewurztraminer shows its true colours at a young age but will also reward time in the bottle. Enjoy over the next five years and probably longer.

Te Whare Ra (Marlborough) 2020 Gewurztraminer

94 Points - Nick Stock, James Suckling’s Top 100 NZ
"Wow, this has so much rose perfume and lychee going on. Striking nose that’s so, so perfumed and alluring. The palate has a super-luscious texture and bold ripe peach and mango, banana and lychee. A riot of flavor. Drink now."

95 Points - Cameron Douglas MS
"Pristine pure bouquet, exotic, fleshy, fruity and familiar. Aromas and flavours of apples and white fleshed tropical fruits, roses and sweet grapefruit, umami and spice. A silky texture precedes contrasting acidity and fine fruit tannin textures. Long lasting finish with a plush and satisfying climax. Best drinking upon purchase and through 2026+. Perfect vegan, vegetarian and white fleshed proteins wine."

Winery notes
"Te Whare Ra has a long standing reputation for producing one of New Zealand’s finest Gewürztraminers and much of the credit must go to the vineyard here. This wine is produced solely from 14 rows in the old block which were planted in 1979 and are some of the oldest vines in Marlborough at 38 years of age. Part of the reason for our conversion to organic and biodynamic farming was to rescue these old vines and coax them back to life. We saw huge potential in this old block and successfully rejuvenating them has been one of our greatest achievements. They are very low-cropping, which is not great for the accountant’s numbers, but this is worth it for the amazing complexity and concentration we get from the fruit and the exceptional quality of the resultant wines.

Intensely perfumed, with notes of lychees, ripe oranges and cloves. These lead into luscious varietal flavours of lychee and quince, with underlying characters of ginger and exotic spice. The palate shows intense fruit concentration and weight with a fine, soft texture and excellent persistence of flavour. This wine is off dry and continues the outstanding quality of previous vintages of our Te Whare Ra Gewürztraminer."
