Winemaker's Notes

The 2008 Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc is a pale straw color. 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. Blending fruit from both the Awatere and Wairau Valley regions of Marlborough benefits the wine with aromatics being enhanced by the Wairau Valley component and a mineral note being imparted from the Awatere Valley component.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid, refreshing and brimming with lime-accented pear, star fruit and light vanilla flavors, lingering nicely on the expressive finish. Drink now."

Enjoyed this wine very much. It had more lime than it did the grapefruit character which tends to be common in NZ Sauv Blancs. But very pleasant--crisp, straight-forward, refreshing. A good choice with fish or spicy Asian dishes.
