Winemaker 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."

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.

California

View all wine

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
