Winemaker Notes

Our Pinot Noir is bold, fresh, direct, elegant and balanced. It delivers dark cherry, plum and blackberry fruit notes and soft, well-integrated tannins.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Here's a fresh, floral pinot noir with full-on richness, its texture providing a comfortable velvet nap. There's a tangy orange spice to the aroma, but the main takeaway is that textural finesse. This is made by Glenn Thomas at Vavasour, blending fruit from their local Awatere vineyards with grapes from Wairau. It's a simple pleasure and a great buy for casual entertaining.
JS 91
James Suckling
A bright, engaging, approachable pinot noir that takes plenty of ripe cherry and boysenberry fruit, lightens it nicely with crunchy acidity and frames it in smooth, supportive tannins. Finishes juicy and upbeat.

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.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
