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.

Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent yet underappreciated dry wines, Portugal is unique in that it relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to the west on the Iberian Peninsula, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, perhaps due in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. Portugal is a long and narrow country, which makes for considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast. With the exception of Port, most Portuguese wines have struggled to garner attention in the international marketplace, perhaps due to the unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce nature of most of its grape varieties and terminology, which means that there are many excellent values to be discovered here by the adventurous consumer. The country is perhaps better known for being the world’s leader in cork production than for its wine.

Port, made in the Douro Valley, is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous. The same region also produces full-bodied dry wines made from the same set of grape varieties, which include Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo). The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast. Other dry wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of the north, the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão, and the bold, jammy reds of the Alentejo.
