Cypress Hawke’s Bay Merlot 2014

04-Nov-2016
Gus and Mel Lawson established Cypress Wines after they left Te Awa in 2002. The Lawsons have 6 ha of vines with plantings on steep clay and limestone-influenced soils, on Roy’s Hill, overlooking the Gimblett Gravels, as well as on the flatter gravel-based soils at the base of the hill. The core range are the ‘Cypress’ white label wines, and they have a reserve-styled ‘Cypress Terraces’ tier, along with an icon ‘The Cypress’ wine. Gus and Mel make the wine with input from Pieter Koopman. The Lawsons have quietly grown their brand and have a loyal following. Here, I review the second bottling of their Cypress Merlot 2014, identifiable by Lot Number L0802. www.cypresswines.co.nz
