Winemaker's Notes:

Dashwood Pinot Noir is bold, fresh, direct, elegant and balanced. It delivers ripe, black cherry fruit notes and tannins that are soft, broad and well-integrated.

About Dashwood:

The Dashwood brand was developed by Vavasour Wines in 1989. Given the commitment to using the Vavasour brand for wines true to the Awatere Valley, it provided flexibility within the company's portfolio to have the Dashwood range as a blend of fruit from Marlborough's Wairau and Awatere Valleys.

Dashwood wines bring the luscious, clean fruit characters of the Wairau Valley into harmony with the flinty, or mineral, characters of the Awatere (resulting from the comparatively cooler but drier temperatures and slightly less fertile soils). Created by long-standing winemaker, Glenn Thomas, who joined Vavasour in 1988, Dashwood wines are made in an earlier drinking style than those carrying the Vavasour brand and are considered outstanding value for money by wine buyers across the globe.
