Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 was an interesting vintage, with early spring frosts and cool wet conditions during flowering, naturally restricting the vines crop levels. Luckily from this inauspicious start the weather warmed up and glorious late summer and autumn temperatures allowed the Sauvignon Blanc to ripen fully. Flavor development was further aided by the cool nights during the crucial period leading up to harvest.

The 2007 Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc was produced from fruit grown in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys in Marlborough. Blending fruit from both regions benefits the wine with the aromatics from the Wairau Valley component, and a mineral note from the Awatere Valley component.

This classically styled wine shows lifted melon, citrus and fresh tropical notes on the nose. These flavors follow through to the richly structured palate, which has a long crisp finish.

"This fruity sauvignon bears an intriguing range of green scents, from kiwi to fennel and shizo. Both lush and fresh, it's a generously textured white for yellowtail sashimi."

This wine is very refreshing, crisp with subtle fruit. Not up to Kim Crawford, but for the price point it is very appealing. Would definately have for parties on the Verandah.
