Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2009 Lawson's Dry Hills Gewürztraminer is a wonderful expression of a great vintage. The wine is luscious and round with gentle acidity, balanced by a hint of sweetness(9.2g/L). Lemon peel, marmalade, candyfloss, coriander, ginger and floral notes can all be found on the nose. The palate is mouthfilling and rich with lovely concentration. Lychee, lemon and Turkish delight flavours lead on to a long spicy finish. As the wine develops it will become more expressive on the nose and increasingly complex.

Critical Acclaim

"Lawson's Gewürztraminer is always near the top of its class, and the 2009 offers expressive scents of lychee and ginger married to a powerful, round, nearly dry palate. Finishes long and spicy. Drink it over the next couple of years for its exuberance. "

Learn About Lawson's Dry Hills

Lawson's Dry Hills is a medium-sized Marlborough wine company committed to the production of premium Marlborough wines. The company was founded in 1992 by Ross and Barbara Lawson, when they decided to make wine themselves rather than on-selling the grapes that they had been growing since 1980. The wines have been received well, with many show successes. Recent vintages of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and now Pinot Noir show excellent depth of fruit and complexity with a variety of winemaking techniques applied.
