Blind River and Lawson’s Dry Hills ‘Reserve’ 2016 Pinot Noirs

24-Apr-2018

Over 25 years of winegrowing, Lawson’s Dry Hills has forged a reputation second to none for its Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and aromatic white varieties. However the team at Lawson’s Dry Hills over the past few years has upped the ante with its Pinot Noir programme. The identification of superior vineyard sites, the best performing clones, small batch fermentation and careful selection of tanks and barrels for blending has seen Pinot Noirs of increasing quality be released. Here I review two 2016 Pinot Noir variants from Lawson’s Dry Hills, the Awatere Valley-sourced ‘Blind River’ and Lawson’s Dry Hills ‘Reserve’ bottlings. www.blindriver.co.nzwww.lawsonsdryhills.co.nz
