Lawson's Dry Hills is a family owned winery in Marlborough, focussed on the production of quality wine. Their Pinot Gris is a nod to the old world, with a leesy texture and a touch of residual sugar, this is a wine of finesse and elegance.Ideal wine to drink whilst young, however this wine will become more complex and interesting with age.
Potential: 4 -5 years
Pear, stonefruit and citrus characters feature strongly and the combination of low yields, partial barrel fermentation and lees stirring has produced a wine with weight, complexity and length.
