Lawson’s Dry Hills Riesling 2019, Marlborough.  94 points

Classic, lifted, aromatic and very enticing bouquet of lime and lemon, apple and a steely mineral quality. Crisp, dry and delicious, an aperitif style with moderate alcohol delivers a wine of vigour and freshness, flavours reflect the bouquet with a backbone of acidity and lengthy lime and mineral finish. Best from 2024 through 2034+. Fantastic value.

Vineyards and viticulture

This is a single vineyard wine produced from a single pick from our Waihopai block in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. The 2019 vintage was great for Riesling and allowed is to pick at the perfect time.


Once picked in the cool of the early morning, the grapes are gently pressed with only the free-run juice being fermented to make this wine. The juice is inoculated and fermented at low temperature (10-12C) to retain the wine natural bright fruit aromatics.

Food Pairing

Brilliant aperitif, but also good with soft, white cheeses, feta, fresh seafood with lemon or lime flavours, poached or smoked fish, salads, green vegetable dishes, fresh summer herbs.
