The Pioneer celebrates Lawson’s Dry Hills founder Ross Lawson. It is hand crafted only in exceptional years from our finest estate-grown, Marlborough grape varieties.
Created exclusively from the Tilly’s Pinot Noir block in their Southern Valleys vineyard, this elegant yet powerful Pinot Noir offers an authentic representation of this enigmatic grape variety and the special place it was grown. Lifted aromas of fresh cherry, raspberry and boysenberry with gentle toasted characters from the French oak barrels make for a complex, rewarding and memorable wine.
This special wine received the Gold medal and the De Sangosse NZ, Champion Pinot Noir 2020 trophy at the Marlborough Wine Show 2023.

Well done team!
