When you combine more than 20 years’ experience with an inquisitive spirit, the result is a perfect balance of knowledge and innovation. These two traits can be found in every bottle of Lawson’s Dry Hills wine – wonderful, top quality fruit from their carefully nurtured vineyards transformed into imminently drinkable wines using modern winemaking techniques.
Bright raspberry and cherry aromas and flavours, with subtle vanilla and cinnamon notes. The palate is supple and elegant with a light dusting of tannins.
A lovely match for new season rack of lamb with redcurrant sauce.
Traditional Burgundy methods of open top fermenters, with hand plunging and light French oak aging for 9 months.
