Lawson’s Dry Hills Reserve Pinot Noir

New Zealand, Marlborough

The second release of the Pinot Noir Reserve, Lawson’s has once again delivered a stunning New World Pinot Noir. Carefully selected from their very best vineyards and barrels, the constant focus on quality is reflected in a wine of great depth and complexity – bright berry fruits and dark cherry flavours coupled with sweet oak aromas, vanilla hints and silky tannins. Superb.”

Origin

Marlborough is regarded by many as one of New Zealand's premier wine regions, especially where Sauvignon Blanc is concerned; producers such as Lawson's Dry Hills are demonstrating that the area can produce top quality Pinot Noir too! For this wine, five pickings are made from Lawson's Barnsley and Waihopai Valley Vineyards. These two vineyards are particular suited to Pinot Noir production due to the free draining soils and high diurnal temperature fluctuation, reflected in the aromatics, weight and concentration of the wine.

Grape Variety

100% Pinot Noir.

This New World red is created using the traditional Old World Burgundian techniques; using small batches, destemmed fruit is placed into open-top fermenters and undergoes hand plunging, the resultant wine partly matured in French oak barriques (25% new). The key to this wine's quality is that only the best batches were blended to create the final product, kept separate during the nine months maturation process.

Alcohol Percentage

13.5%

Cellar Potential
