Lawson’s Dry Hills has been awarded two international trophies in two years at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

The Decanter World Wine Awards is the world’s largest and most influential wine competition with over 13,000 entries. The awards ceremony held in London last night, announced a number of trophies, including the international trophy for Dry Aromatic Under £15 awarded to Lawson’s Dry Hills Gewurztraminer 2012.

Commenting on the award, Chief Winemaker for Lawson’s Dry Hills, Marcus Wright said, “It’s a great result for us – we pride ourselves on our aromatics and recognition like this just endorses what we love doing.” He continues, “Gewurztraminer is a passion for us as it is for those who love to drink it.”

The award follows on from the company receiving the trophy for International Sauvignon Blanc last year with their Mount Vernon label.

Lawson’s Dry Hills is one of New Zealand’s most iconic wine producers. In addition to embracing Marlborough’s famous Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, both of which have earned the team numerous awards, the company has become particularly famous for its Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Pinot Gris.

The company prides itself on its people. While almost every vineyard in the world will explain that their wine is special because it embodies the nobleness of the land from which it came, Lawson’s also believe that great wine comes down to those who use their skill, experience and passion to create something outstanding from the raw materials of nature.

Lawson’s Dry Hills exports to more than 20 countries with its three brands: Lawson’s Dry Hills, Lawson’s Reserve and The Pioneer.
