Winemaker Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc style is bright, forward and direct. Vivaciously crisp, it showcases gooseberry, citrus and fresh tropical fruit flavors that linger through the finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2021 Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc is racy on the palate and crisp in the finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of grapefruit, lemon peel, and chalky notes. Enjoy it with smoked mussels in a garlic wine broth. (Tasted: March 24, 2022, Rutherford, CA)

Dashwood, New Zealand
Dashwood Winery Image

Established in 1989 and named after the Dashwood Pass which connects Marlborough’s main Wairau Valley to its smaller Awatere Valley, Dashwood crafts wines that are a pure, expressive reflection of these preeminent wine growing regions. Fruit is sourced from estate and grower vineyards to showcase the best of each valley: the concentrated fruit of the cooler and smaller Awatere, and the more expressive, tropical flavors of the wider Wairau. Year in and year out Dashwood produces wines that are consistently balanced and vibrant and over-deliver on Marlborough’s classic style: intense fruit flavors from the Wairau Valley, with the intrigue and complexity of the Awatere.

Dashwood’s winemaking team is led by Stu Marfell who became Dashwood’s Chief Winemaker in 2007, and was a finalist at the 2008 and 2009 Young Winemaker of the Year Awards. In 2018 he was recognized as Winemaker of the Show at the New Zealand International Wine Awards. Born and raised in the Awatere Valley, not far from Dashwood’s vineyards, Stu continues to live a stone’s throw from the winery with his wife and children.

The flower on their label honors New Zealand’s beloved pohutukawa, a Maori word meaning ‘drenched with mist.’ These trees bloom with crimson flowers each December, making a striking display along the nearby coastline where the Awatere River meets the cool waters of the Pacific.

Marlborough Wine

New Zealand

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
