A Riesling of refined character and exquisite charm, superb, stylish integration and clearly discernible regional varietal eloquence, sourced from the best blocks on the Lawson's Dry Hills Waihopai Valley vineyard. Moderate crop yields and cool ripening mean that the Riesling grapes are first class, harvested only as they develop a concentration of natural fruit sugars and reach optimal flavour development. The perfect match to shellfish, green lipped mussels or freshly shucked oysters.
The way to make great Marlborough Riesling is simple and straighforward. Leaf pruning of the vines is essential in achieving maximum quality of fruit. Moderate yields, moderate leaf plucking and harvesting at moderate brix levels all combine to produce an amazing Riesling wine. Grapes are harvested and gently pressed, the excusively free run juices are inoculated through a choice aromatic strain of yeast to enhance natural fruit flavours. Pressings are discarded and ferments are maintained at low temperatures to retain the vivid and intense citrus characters of Marlborough Riesling. Upon completion the wine is allowed to sit on lees for a several months before being gently filtered and bottled.
TASTING NOTES
Brilliant straw colour with pale hue. Lively nose, florals and ripe fruit hinting of peaches and pear, lemons, lime and mandrarin peel aromas leap out of the glass. An off dry palate exhibiting impressive concentration and length, nicely balanced by firm citrus acidity. Tantalizing suggestion of mineral and satisfying textures, balance and weight over crisp acid backbone.

More About Lawsons Dry Hills Wines
Lying east/west and enjoying a cool maritime climate, the Wairau River Valley maximises the wonderfully long clear sunny days, which are especially evident during the autumn ripening period
These long hot days are balanced by cooler nights, lengthening the ripening process and in turn, intensifying the flavours in the fruit and subsequently the wine. It is the large difference in diurnal temperatures that is believed to make Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc unlike any other in the world. Lawsons Dry Hills»
